We continue our article about how to care for wool throws.
What if my wool throw shrinks?
The most common issue people face after washing their wool throws & blankets is shrinkage. And this is really a problem. This happens when wool items are washed in too warm or even hot water, or dried outside in a direct sunlight. Your wool throws will also shrink if dried in a dryer.
It is a common problem and a very annoying one because wool blankets once shrunk, will stay this size forever. They cannot be resized back to their previous size.
