June 10th, Guest Jacqueline Sava of SOAK Wash
6/10 ~ Guest Jacqueline Sava of Soak on Yarn Thing Podcast with Marly Bird.
Marly broadcasted live while on location, she’s going to meet Dianna Galbadon, author of the Outlander books… You heard that episode, right? https://www.blogtalkradio.com/yarnthing/2013/10/03/diana-gabaldon-talks-about-outlander
Jacqueline Sava was designing knitwear and was often asked how to take care of them. About 8 years ago, they began to seek the best ways to take care of our wool knits… and SOAK was born! Care was taken in selecting everything about the product including the packaging.
Soak website: https://www.soakwash.com/ Many popular choices of scents including Fragrance Free and Bio-degradable (and thus clear and color-free). Recently rebranded, formula has been updated to plant-derived, 100% post consumer resin bottles (recycled), labels are recycled and water-based ink were redesigned, too! Lizzy House designed the Yuzu labels, Sandi Henderson did Celebration labels, Joanna Figueroa did the fig labels, Denyse Schmidt did the Scent-less labels.
Their products includes:
- Handmade, a Shea-butter based hand-cream that is absorbed into your skin
- Soakboxes, knitting gift kit, includes Lorna’s Laces Yarn, with a pattern by Fiona Ellis, with nail polish to match, you could give to a knitter and they can knit the gloves or you could knit the gloves and give the whole kit to a non-knitter.
- Flatter fabric spray, great for spray blocking lace, but other times complete water soak is not to advantage in blocking. Also, great for spraying fabric when traveling to refresh the garment.
- Nail polish colors to match your yarn is fun. SOAK is working to put together a blog post for how to have a Nail Party at your LYS or knit night. How fun is that! The Ravelry collection has been a big hit. https://soakwash.com/store/cdn_retail/soak-boxes/nail-polish-sb/ravpolish.html
She will be at Quilt Canada today, in the UK mid-July for Unwind in Briton. Soak can also be found at lingerie trade-shows this summer.
