How do I get oil out of my handspun soy silk yarn?

If the soy silk isn't dyed, washing in warm water shouldn't harm it at all. I'd use something like dawn dishwashing liquid or a wool scour, to help ensure the oil will come out.

The only related cold-water-and-oil washing I do is laundry -- and unless I heavily pretreat the oil spots on clothes, the cold water just doesn't take the oil out.
