How do I get a microplush blanket to stop leaving red fuzz everywhere?

I bought my husband a red microplush blanket as a present. It is leaving red fuzz all over the place, including our sheets and clothes. I've tried washing it but it is still shedding. It is still relatively new, will this stop after a few washes? Anyone know of any tricks to get it to stop? This wasn't a cheap purchase and I'm not thrilled!!! Please help :)

  • Wash it some more. I've never had one do that but I've always gotten the cheaper ones.

  • My husband had a few fleece blankets like this. After several washes and just plain old use, the blankets were fine.
