Frayed Throw Blanket Prevention Tips
If you find yourself with a frayed throw blanket, there are a few things you can do to prevent the problem from happening in the future. Follow these tips to keep your blanket in good condition:
– Make sure you’re using the blanket properly. Frayed blankets will happen more often if they’re being used as a bedspread or cover instead of just as a soft, cozy throw.
– Be careful when washing the blanket. Harsh detergents can cause the fabric to fray even more. Instead, use a gentle wash cycle and low heat.
– Don’t overuse the blanket. It’s best to use it sparingly during cold weather so it doesn’t wear out quickly.
– Store the blanket in a high humidity area like an attic or basement to prevent it from drying out.
If your throw blanket is showing signs of fraying, there are a few easy steps you can take to fix the problem. Start by cutting off any frayed fabric where it appears to be damaged or worn down. Once you have removed this damaged material, you can start stitching the fabric back together using a straight stitch and a piece of thread that is at least twice the width of the seam you are repairing. Make sure that you hold the stitches tight while sewing in order to prevent loose threads from appearing again in future sessions of wear and tear.
