I have a huge amount of Soie Naturelle, and it smells AWFUL. i was going to make a comfort shawl, but as soon as the swatch came out of water, it smelled so wrong. Not the weird fishy smell that silk clothing sometimes gets, this is almost a mildewy smell. combined with something wrose.


Any ideas for fixing it?

Is it dry yet? How does it smell now?

ick- I bought some cotton that smelled like stinky dishrags... so gross. I washed it in a little vinegar and then rinsed with a little tto- made a huge improvement.

Yep, it's dry. And nasty. I'm going to try some eucalan, but I don't know if it'll help.
