TIFU by washing my small woolen blanket in hot water

I've had this small merino wool blanket since I was about 2 years old, and it has traveled with me in the 30 years since. I love it when camping because I can wrap myself in it while in my sleeping bag and be super warm and cozy. Last year I finally retired the stuffed bunny I've had since I was five, which I slept with every night and brought on nearly every trip I've ever taken. I realized it was getting to be too worn out and I needed to keep it safe, so I put it on a shelf at my dad's and held my little blanket closer.

I've been really good about washing it in cold water only, because I wash all my stuff in cold water. I recently moved into an artist in residency situation and have been getting used to the washer/dryer set up in the space. I washed my sheets today and thought it would be a good idea to run the "sanitizing wash" and I even put my little blanket in my mesh bag so the fringe wouldn't get messed up. I didn't think about the heat and how it would affect my precious blanket, and when I pulled it out of the wash I nearly cried.

It's all crumpled looking and rough feeling and I don't know how to make it better, if I can even improve the situation. I google'd and read about using hair conditioner and detergent to loosen up the fibers, but I don't have any conditioner (I use Dr. Bronner's all in one for everything). I'm hoping it'll relax a bit on its own, and I'm going to wash it on a cold wash the next time I wash my clothes.

TL;DR: damaged my baby blanket in a sanitizing wash and am heartbroken

Sheeps and woolen Blanket (Hindi WA Fwd)

भेड़ों की भीड़ को भाषण देते हुए एक नेता ने वचन दिया कि

"सभी भेड़ों को एक एक वुलन ब्लेंकेट फ्री में दिया जाएगा..."

यह सुन कर सभी भेड़ आनंद से नाचने लगे.

तभी एक बच्चे ने अपनी माँ से पूछा -

"माँ, यह ब्लेंकेट के लिए इतना वूल लाएगा कहाँ से?"

यह सवाल सुन कर सभी भेड़ एकदम से शांत हो गए.

She loves tucking herself in the woolen blanket, and often licking the blanket to thank it, I think. Weirdo.

Replicating a Faribault Woolen Mill style blanket

I'm new, but my ultimate goal in weaving is to make a plaid blanket of Chicago flag colors in the style of Faribaul Woolen Mills (http://www.faribaultmill.com/collections/throws/products/hastings-plaid-throw).

My questions as I am starting towards this goal that I think I can change about my current projects is what sort of dents/inch reed should I be looking for and what weight of yarn? I'd like to start working with both before I do the actual project.

My favorite Christmas gifts this year were woolen kitty socks, a fuzzy R2D2 blanket, and tickets to a film festival.

Hi my name is Gemma. As you can probably gather from my username, I love Star Wars... and even though it had some flaws, I loved The Last Jedi. I'm also so happy they brought Grand Admiral Thrawn back into the official canon, and am looking forward to seeing what happens to him in the second half of Rebels Season 4. Also need to see if I can pre-order the new Thrawn comic (I've always been a little intimidated by comic books, so I'm hoping that by reading a series about a character I'm already familiar with, I'll get more into it.)

My Christmas this year was pretty good... after 5 years of being together my husband and I are finally beginning to figure out what works for us as far as family obligations go. The agreement this year was that he would commit to exactly ONE family event on my side, and I would do the same. That worked pretty well... I think we'll do that again next year. It's so hard to find that balance between just enough socializing and too much socializing.

I live in the Midwest so my timezone is CST... I have a typical 8-4 workweek so I'm usually online in the evenings and weekends. I would love a casual online friend that I could talk with about Star Wars, Star Trek (especially the new show Discovery!) film, TV shows, writing, traveling, or just share funny cat GIFs.

My preferred method of contact is PM on Reddit u/protocol-droid-82. If things progress to the "next level" we can set up a different way to communicate... I look forward to hearing from people!

What are your thoughts on lanolizing a woolen baby blanket?

I'll lanolize my babies woolen nappy (diaper) covers but have never done a blanket. Is it worthwhile? Would I do it the same way? Ie - wash as usual, soak for 30min in warm water with a bit of lanolin, then dry?
