Handwashing and Hand Washing

woolwash

Hand Washing: Wash your hands for 30 seconds with soap and water to break down the proteins of a virus and rinse it away. It's basically magic... but it's science.

Handwashing: Technically a chore, but also kind of fun? Get reacquainted with your handknits and make them look (and smell) their best. Learn all about how to handwash your knits in this Q&A blog post.

One vital tool for handwashing is a high-quality no-rinse laundry soap (a.k.a. woolwash). This under-appreciated marvel of the modern age keeps woolens and other delicates in tip-top shape, plus it's indispensable for travel. You can even use it in your washing machine and skip the rinse cycle to save time and water.

SOAK

Soak scents include Celebration (vanilla tea), Fig, Lacey (bergamot & blossoms), Pineapple, Scentless, Unleash (apple & pomegranate), and Yuzu.

EUCALAN

Eucalan is scented with essential oils and includes lanolin to gently condition woolens. Like Soak, it is available in single-use packets, travel-sized bottles, and full-size wash-all-the-things bottles.
