As scouring takes valuable time we will demonstrate this process briefly so you know how to do it at home.

We will be working with cellulose fibre but invite you to bring your own protein fibre as described in the optional section below.

First we will discuss, prepare and use tannin baths followed by alum bath for protein and alum acetate bath for cellulose.
