Sorta OT: Caring for storebought knits
I bought this fabulous knit jacket. It's clearly machine knit, but not like most machine knits where the gauge is like 40 stitches to the inch, it looks like DK and I love it (and I'm contemplating telling people, why yes, I did knit this. j/k! ;-)) Anyway, the care instructions say Dry Clean.... it's 80% wool, 20% nylon, which to me says washable... Can I just use Eucalan or similar you think? There's nothing fancy about it, ribbed bottom, collar, and cuffs, rest in stockinette...

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson
