We’ve got a full collections of Soak Wash in stock for the holidays, including mini and full sized bottles of all five regular scents, as well as the special Unleashed scent, and both of their the shallow and deep basins.
Now, I know it seems like a strange gift to give, but I swear that any person who receives this will fall deeply in love with the stuff. Once you go Soak, you don’t go back. The mini bottles make a great stocking stuffer, and a large bottle coupled with a basin makes a great gift that you know they’ll actually use!
Just one caveat – if you are newly married, or want to be, I don’t suggest you gift Soak unless it’s been requested (you’re good if it’s on the list). In order to fan the fires of romance, I suggest a knitting needle set (a set of Addi Turbos will put you in good stead for years!), a wool winder and/or a swift (an equally sexy choice), a needle case, or a gift certificate. Of course, we have all of the above and will help you choose.
Soak Wash – Special Fibre Care
120ml/$10.50 or 425ml/$16.50
Soak is a special fibre wash which is perfect for both hand knits as well as lingere, unmentionables, and clothes you love. It is easy to use, and doesn’t require rinsing out, and is made in Canada. It is available in 5 fresh fragrances, as well as scentless:
- Citrus has the delicious smell of “fresh-squeezed clean”.
- Aquae is a “purely elemental” scent that’s like a breath of fresh sea air.
- Celebration smells intoxicating though it’s really just ‘good clean fun’.
Flora is a lovely spring fragrance that will make you “stop and smell the fibers”
- Scentless keeps your hand-washables (and sensitive skin) completely fragrance-free. Just a fresh and ultra-clear way to take care of the fine fibers you care about most.
- Celebration is an original limited edition fragrance that has transcended traditional fiber care to become a timeless classic.
Soak Wash Unleash
Unleash is a special collection from Soak, inspired by everything Ravelry. Unleash your creative juices with this sweet and spicy scent you’d follow anywhere. Unleash is the core of this new collaboration between Soak and Ravelry.
Carrie and Phil Basins from Soak
Phil (shallow)/$30.50 or Carrie (deep)/$34.50
Carrie and Phil are wash an storage basins, perfect for Soaking your hand wash. They are sturdy, high quality vessels which are also great for storage, stash containment, and home pedicures. They are available in a range of bright colours.
- Beveled edges for easy pouring.
- Tall/short wash basin
- Frost and UV resistant
- Made in Spain
Gift a Carrie and/or Phil with a bottle of Soak, a few skeins of yarn and some needles, or a pedicure set. You won’t regret purchasing a Carrie or Phil, they are the best little buckets you never thought you’d fall in love with. Once it’s in your home, you’ll laugh at yourself for ever thinking that something cheap & made in China is equivalent – take it from me, a skeptic, there’s just no comparison.
Eucalan Delicate Wash
100ml/$4.50 or 500ml/$11.50
If you aren’t into fragrances and want something a little more on the natural side, Eucalan will be right up your alley. Like Soak, Eucalan is a no rinse delicate wash, it is also made in Canada, and it works exactly as well for all the same purposes. But Eucalan comes in a series of natural scents, derived from essential oils. It does not contain pthalates, which are normally associated with fragrance. Eucalan comes in unscented, lavender, grapefruit, and eucalyptus, and the small 100ml bottles make great stocking stuffers! Eucalyptus also has antibacterial properties, which makes it great for washing hand knitted socks (some people gift a bottle when they give socks). Eucalan is also especially helpful for scratchy sweaters, as the lanolin in it will soften the up a bit.
