Once you've finished creating your beautiful natural knit, be it a sweater, socks, or a unique new pattern of your own, your next step will probably be to give it it's first washing. Just as the fibers we use in our knitting are important, so are the soaps we use to wash our knitted garments. Like synthetic yarns, 'synthetic' soaps also contain hazardous chemicals, known to cause cancer and other health disorders. There are several natural soaps available that offer the perfect choice for natural knits.
Two of the most popular and widely recommended soap brands for washing knitted projects are Soak and Eucalan. However, we recommend Dr. Bronner's and Charlie’s Soap, as a better, more healthy alternative. A comparison of the ingredients used in the unscented versions of each of these soaps, indicate to us that Dr. Bronners and Charlie’s Soaps are the more reliable for those interested in all-natural:
