Knitter's Review
November 11, 2010
shallots and socks

My, what a clean bunch you are! According to last week's poll, nearly half of you wash your handknitted socks after just one wearing—and another 37 percent of you wash those socks after no more than three wearings.

Which means there's a lot of washing going on. This week we revisit four perennial woolwash favorites: Eucalan, Kookaburra, Soak, and Unicorn Fibre Wash. What are you using?
