How to deal with shedding
This is a nice blanket. It is relatively itchy, if you''re sensitive to wool, but it''s ok as long as you have a different blanket to use over the top of it. It does shed rather a lot, but it helps tremendously if you spin it a number of times on the "air-fluff" (no-heat) cycle in your dryer. Check and empty your lint trap very often. I washed it and then spun it maybe six or eight times, for 30-45 minutes each time, and it has mostly stopped shedding on my clothes when I practice.
