We love our FL for our knits too!

I wash like colors with Eucalan and it works great! Anything with red though is washed separately. We don't use Gaia, but most everything else and it washes up perfectly.

I'm doing it today at nap time! I can't wait to see how it goes!!! Btw, has anyone ever tried throwing the wool in the dryer on the no heat/fluff setting?

I washed a soaker in my front loader last night, no issues and super easy! Yay!

I'd worry that the dryer would agitate the wet fibers together too much with all the spinning.
