Hi Eowyn!
Have you tried the art gum erasers?  the rubbery stretchy ones that pick up stuff
like old silly putty?  Maybe pressing it on [I think I'd use a new clean one} then
lifting off might help.  Or, ya know we always use Dawn dish soap to wash fleece
before and after spinning and again before dyeing and now I wash all my handmade
woolies with it.  You might try it, gets a lot of dirt out.
