Washing a blanket, often thick and quite heavy, seems like a difficult and complicated task. In reality, it is not such a big undertaking and is easily completed successfully. You just have to remember a few important things – including the right temperature.
The blanket, even a very thick and woolen one, should be washed in such a way as not to destroy its structure and to retain as much softness as possible First of all, it is worth dispelling the belief that you always have to wash the blanket by hand. This is very unwieldy – the material is large and, when wet, also very heavy. However, you need to make sure that it is washed in a fairly large washing machine with a load of at least 4 kg
It turns out that this is a very frequently asked question, also the answer can be controversial. Information about the washing temperature can be found on the label and it should be the basic reference point for our actions. It is usually quite low and ranges from 30 to 40°C. In this range we are safe: the fabric will certainly not be damaged, and the washing process will probably be successful.
