How to Wash Mohair Carefully skirt the fleece, removing second cuts and debris. Turn the water heater to 140-160 degrees, and caution others in the household. Turn off the cold water supply at the back of the washer (many washers throw cold water during the spin cycle. This may felt your fiber). Fill the washer with hot water, and 1 cup concentrated dish soap. Turn the washer off. Weigh out up to 1 1/2 pounds of fiber, and push fiber under water. Close the lid, and insulate with a blanket. After soaking 10-15 minutes, turn washer to final spin cycle, being sure to by-pass the aggitation cycle. When washer stops, repeat the process without soap, to rinse. Repeat the process as necessary, knowing the end result will be worth the effort! Remember to turn your water heater back to normal setting when you are through.
