Is Eucalan necessary?
Hello!

I'm using a pattern for making a cowl. The pattern suggests using Brown Sheep Burly Spun Yarn which is 100% wool. The pattern says that I should wash the cowl with Eucalan. Is the Eucalan necessary or could I just use any other soap (as for delicates)? I don't want to ruin the yarn!
Also, I'm afraid washing the cowl will wash away the color, how do I avoid this? My mom used to say that soaking a fabric in water with a lot of table salt will fix the colors, but again, I don't know if I should do that with wool.
Are other things that I should keep in mind with knitting with 100% wool? (I've just started knitting a couple months ago and have only used acrylic and cotton yarns)

Thanks!!!
