Woolen Blankets

Before you put your woolen blankets in stor­age, here are a couple of tips for their care …

Check care labels before you do any­thing. If your blankets are washable, use a gentle setting in your machine and cool water – hot water will yellow and shrink wool. Be sure to use a mild deter­gent and check to see that the detergent is thoroughly dissolved before putting your blankets in. Rinse very thoroughly and do not use a softener.
