Fleece, Fiber & Eucalan

Just as Eucalan is excellent care for your finished handmade goods, it’s also a great way to condition the fibres in your handspun yarn. We recently spotted Eucalan mentioned here on the Knitting Sarah blog, where she used a sample of Wrapture by Kristin Omdahl to wash her beautiful finished skein of handspun yarn. Our lanolin-enriched formula not only softens the fibres and allows them to bloom, but it also helps to control static!

In fact, you can even use it to wash raw fleece before you spin with it, which is a great way to remove vegetable matter and any residual dirt which may be lingering in those spin-worthy locks.

Here are some easy-to-follow instructions on how to wash your fleece; we recommend using our Lavender or Eucalyptus scents for their natural moth and flea inhibiting properties.

Those of you who are concerned about the environment will be glad to know that our formula is non-toxic, biodegradable, and phosphate-free. We are even used by the Green Mountain Spinnery, a sustainable yarn producer located in Putney, VT!

We are always interested in hearing about how our fans are using Eucalan – feel free to share your own suggestions in the comments below!
