Question from Eugenia
bot in thrift store.
65% new wool
35% reprocessed wool
looks in good condition – cant judge age of blanket – has one small tear on an edge.
I want to cut it up for mini blankets to put in Catio (indoor/outdoor) cat beds for extra warmth this winter .
Should I wash it first (& with what?) or might it be safe for cats as is?
My research does show blankets can be washed with Woolite and rinsed with white vinegar.
But nowhere does it say it might be a problem for warm cat or dog beds. Also my daughter buys wool sweaters etc at thrift stores for catsbeds for the Hobo cats shelters and her indoor cats too. (She lives in cold mountain area.) We always washed first.
