  • wash in cold or warm water with like a gentle soap on the delicate cycle alone it will be fine. air dry or low heat dry it.

  • what she said :)

    it's also going to depend on the yarn used. I find that acrylic yarns matte up in the dryer so I prefer to lay those flat to dry.

  • After you wash it I recommend combing out the fringe with a wide tooth comb.

  • if it's a baby blanket maybe it will fit in a pillowcase and wash it that way
