FAQ: Washable Blankets

One of our most frequently asked questions deals with blanket care: Are any of your blankets washable, or are they all dry clean only?

Eco-Wise Easy Care blanket
in Blackwatch Plaid

For many Pendleton wool blankets, we recommend dry cleaning as the safest cleaning method. But we do have a line of washable wool bedding: the Eco-Wise Easy Care blankets, shams, and throws. These 100% wool products can be machine washed in cold water and hung to dry or tumbled dry on low heat.

Let the countdown begin: six weeks to go!

Registration is now open for the 2015 Sewing and Sitchery Expo in Puyallup, Washington. This is the nation's largest sewing expo, with seminars, workshops, hundreds of vendors, fashion shows, demons, and much more.

Once again, the Woolen Mill Store will be in attendance, with fabric, felt binding, carded wool, unique notions, kits, buttons and conchos... too many good things to list them all!

We are offering two classes at Sew Expo this year: Wool Selvage Rug Crochet on Sunday, March 1 and two sessions of the Roll-Up Picnic Blanket on Thursday, February 26 and Friday, February 27. We suggest registering early, as these classes can fill up quickly. They can be found under Three Needle Seminars in the Sew Expo brochure.

Will we see you there?
