It's no surprise that Eucalan is found in yarn shops, usually near the register. When you pay a premium for fine natural yarn and spend hours knitting it up, you certainly want to wash it gently in the finest product you can find.
Eucalan is perfect for washable handknits. It's also great for washing all your delicate clothes: give them a soak, no need to rinse. It saves water and is SO gentle on fabrics. You can use it in the washing machine, which is why I buy this larger size. It's also a good alternative to traditional fabric softener for sheets and towels, leaving them subtly scented and with their absorbency intact.
After years of using the original eucalyptus scent, I was delighted to find new products from this Toronto company: unscented, grapefruit, and this gentle lavender, my current favorite. The scents are not overwhelming and come from essential oils, no artificial fragrance.
The eucalyptus and lavender have moth-inhibiting properties and that's a very good thing for woolens. Here's a bonus: these scents are flea-inhibiting as well. I've washed my dog in the eucalyptus and been very happy with the outcome; haven't had the heart to wash him in lavender yet, in case the other dogs think ... well, you know, he has an image to maintain out there.
Recommended for all the delicate fabrics you treasure.
