beautiful knit detailed edge
This is Karen's Disana Blanket purchased 16 years ago. If you wash it gently, don't put it in the dryer (well, I do put mine in the dryer on extra low for about 5-10 minutes, but be careful and keep an eye on it so you don't over-felt it), and wash it only occasionally (they don't need washing often since they are wool), they really do hold up well and for many years. This has been through a few kids and several cats. It is still beautiful and soft. It still stays on the couch and we use and enjoy it often.
Wash infrequently and only very gently (hand wash or use wool cycle in a machine that has it). Wool does not like heat. Air fluff only to avoid too much felting. Complete instructions are included with your order. See more information about washing wool. It is unlikely that you will ever need add lanolin to the blanket. The lanolizing information is for diaper covers, not for clothing or blankets.
