I love the blanket. I twisted all of the fringes and fulled it in the washing machine now it is hanging over the ironing board drying. It only shrunk 2" each way and it softened up so much. It is light as a feather but will be really warm. It turned out better than I hoped. Now I can't wait for it to dry. I will bring it to spinning on Tuesday for anyone wanting to see it in person.
Now I wonder what colour blanket to do next
