So pretty.... But be warned
This throw is so pretty. I was so happy when I opened it. But that happiness started to disappear quickly. It's fringy. And threads were dropping all over the floor. I've had many fringe things. I know they shed. But this one was excessive. I decided to go ahead and wash it to see if that would help. My wash machine was full of threads when I went to put it on the dryer. Then came the dryer. OMG!! Less than 10 minutes into drying I opened it to make sure it was ok. The lint filter was already so full that lint was gathering outside the filter. I emptied it, restarted it and checked it every 5 to 8 minutes to empty the lint filter. I emptied it 5 times before it was dry. The lint didn't end there. I layed it over the back of the couch and lint was all over the couch. So I had to vacuum the couch. I threw it back in the dryer on air fluff on a 10 minute cycle. I did this for 2 hours straight. Emptying the filter at the end of each 10 minute cycle. I finally stopped doing it because other people needed to use the dryer. I have never seen anything lose so much lint in my life. After all that time in the dryer, we took it outside to shake. Holy cow. Fine lint filled the sky like dust. Seriously insane. For now it's thrown in my leather Jensen couch. At least I won't have to vacuum it like I did my fabric one. I do disappointed. It's so pretty. The second photo I've included is just some of the lint that came off of that blanket.
