Deb Robson joins Eunny to talk about the back story of yarn, the process it goes through before you even knit a stitch. To begin, Deb talks about cleaning the fiber to get rid of the waste and dirt by using a wool wash that will preserve the fiber and its true color. She demonstrates how to wash raw fiber with a scouring fluid from Unicorn Fibre Wash, which is one method that preseves the fiber while being strong enough to clean it.
