Eucalan’s washes are non-toxic, biodegradable, phosphate and petro-chemical free. The packaging is recyclable, and it’s an eco-friendly alternative to dry cleaning (but test fabrics for color-fastness first). Eucalan has lanolin and natural essential oils which act as a natural fabric softener making them a great choice for folks with sensitivities to chemical products. Eucalan is the first choice for handmade fiber garments, but it is perfect for all fine washables and can be used in your washing machine for everyday laundry. See why Clara Parkes of Knitter's Review trusts Eucalan above all other products for her handknits.
