Bamboo Huck Lace Baby Blanket

Here is the finished baby blanket. This first picture is a little blurry. I washed it by hand in warm water and it softened up nicely. I've heard that bamboo is dry clean only, but I've also heard that the more it is washed, the softer it will get. I'm tempted to throw it in the washer to see what happens. I figure anything that is going to be around a baby shouldn't be too precious to throw in a washer.

  1. Absolutely gorgeous! What type of soap did you use?

  2. Just my normal hippy Seventh Generation laundry soap. But only a tiny tiny bit of it. Bamboo is naturally antibacterial, but I don't really understand how that works.

  3. As the proud steward(until the real owner arrives!) of this new blanket, I can say that pictures don't do it justice! I'm still so touched at this awesome gift!

    Meara, I had no idea that you blogged. Granted, you use some pretty industry-specific words that fly right past me, but I am very impressed with your catalogue of all things woven, plus the occasional shenanigan. Consider yourself added to my google reader! Mabye I'll get back to my blogging once I'm able to get back on my bike!
