Amble is treated to be easy wash. This process makes wool fibers machine washable without the wool matting or shrinking.  

The procedure is free from  toxic chlorine and adsorbable organohalogen (AOX) normally used to process washable wool. The easy-wash method involves treating wool and alpaca fibers with environmentally friendly oxidizing agents to remove the dandruff that normally causes wool and alpaca to shrink when machine washed.

The chemicals are sourced in Germany and are in accordance with the standards of REACH , Oeko-Tex and  ZDCH (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemical) . Thus, after the treatment process, the wastewater is non-toxic and safe for flora and fauna.
