Hi, just that really-I've got a lovely cream one and It's looking a bit grubby. Has anyone tried washing one? Maybe on a hand wash/ delicate cycle? Or is there really nothing for it but a trip to the dry cleaners? Thanks

Sorry, can't help with your problem, but will supply a cautionary tale.
Washed some 'clean with a damp cloth' cushions yesterday, (20 degrees, short 'delicate' programme) and really regret it. sad
I think, as you love your throw, it would be best to stump up for the dry cleaning.

I do.
Just wash mine on a hand wash cycle as it's the most gentle cycle in my machine.
I don't rumble dry it though.

I do mine frequently on a wool wash cycle with delicate detergent. It comes out absolutely fine.

Ah great, thanks for the replies. I think, on balance I'll chance washing it! Will post back, thanks again

It came out fine - washed it on 30 degree hand wash setting, glad I did it.smile

Ooh thanks. Going to try our grubby one now, it drives me nuts taking it to be dry cleaned. <steels self>

I wash all of our faux fur & wool throws on a 30 wool wash - they're not exactly the same as when u first buy from a shop, but they're pretty close & at least they're not covered in yogurt/milk/grub wink
