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.
