Irish Cable Blanket/Afghan

Knit with the New England Alpaca Fiber Pool Co-op's Huacaya Alpaca Blend yarn, this blanket is generous enough for the whole family, including your fur babies.  Everyone will want to curl up with this soft and cozy afghan. The pattern is a Cable Knit stitch with a Celtic Irish knot pattern. The yarn and knit pattern were designed to provide superior warmth and hand without the bulkiness and excessive weight associated with natural fiber blankets. It's generously sized and makes for an extravagant gift for that special someone.

How do you clean it? Please, listen to our advice, as we learned this the hard way and you have a few options, listed in order of preference:

  • The blanket is machine washable provided you have a wool setting on a front-load washer; even delicate settings on machines agitate the fiber stuffing too much, resulting in felting; FRICTION IS THE ENEMY with protein fibers!  Air dry flat and the blanket is ready for use again. 
  • Hand washing and machine spinning is otherwise the desired method. Air dry flat and the blanket is ready for use again. 
  • Dry clean.
