Can I wash all my blankets the same way? Can you suggest ways on how I can care for my cashmere and wool throws?
Throws have become popular in recent years due to their ability to extend the warmth of the home to an outdoor space. With their color, texture and weave, they can evoke a certain atmosphere that fits the general theme of your living areas. Soft fabrics are perfect for rustic homes, while an elegant color scheme can add a punch of color to typical modern rooms. Throw blankets are the perfect finishing touch and they can be placed anywhere you please, from sofas and beds, to sectional chaises.
The market today offers a myriad of choices when it comes to throws and small blankets. But the differences in these choices mean there are different ways to care for them, to keep them looking new.
How to clean a wool throw
Wool does not have to be washed often unlike other fabrics. If there are stains, do some spot cleaning, and then air it out to keep it fresh. When it’s time to wash, keep in mind that wool can shrink if not handled well.
