How to Wash Tapestry Blanket: Preserving Color and Craftsmanship

Tapestry blankets are unique pieces of woven art that not only keep us warm but also enhance our home decor with their intricate designs and vibrant colors. Proper care is essential to maintain these qualities.

Whether you’re a new owner of a tapestry blanket or looking to refresh an heirloom piece, this guide will provide you with all the necessary steps and tips to clean your tapestry safely and effectively.

How to Wash a Tapestry Blanket

Tapestry blankets, with their rich colors and detailed patterns, require careful handling to maintain their beauty and integrity. Here’s a detailed guide to help you wash your tapestry blanket safely:

  1. Check the Care Label: Start by reading the manufacturer’s instructions on the care label. This will guide you on whether the blanket is suitable for hand or machine washing.

  2. Spot Cleaning:

    • Before washing the entire blanket, tackle any stains by spot cleaning. Use a soft cloth dipped in a mixture of mild detergent and cold water, and gently dab the stained area. Avoid scrubbing to prevent damage to the fabric’s weave.
  3. Hand Washing:

    • Fill a bathtub or large basin with cold water and add a small amount of mild, liquid detergent. Stir the water to ensure the detergent is evenly distributed.
    • Submerge the tapestry blanket in the water, gently swirling it around with your hands to help loosen any dirt. Allow the blanket to soak for up to 30 minutes.
    • Drain the soapy water and rinse the blanket with cold, clean water until all soap residue is removed. This may require several rinses.
  4. Machine Washing:

    • If the care label indicates that machine washing is safe, place the tapestry in a mesh laundry bag to protect its fibers and patterns.
    • Set the washing machine to a gentle cycle with cold water and add a mild detergent. Avoid any harsh chemicals or bleach.
  5. Drying:

    • Carefully remove the blanket from the water and press out excess moisture. Avoid wringing, as this can distort the fabric.
    • Lay the blanket flat on a clean, dry towel and roll it up to absorb more water. Then, unroll and lay flat on a drying rack away from direct sunlight and heat.

Complementing your clean and vibrant tapestry blanket with a comfortable and supportive Puffy Lux Mattress can enhance your bedroom’s comfort and aesthetic.

How to Wash Woven Tapestry Blanket

Woven tapestry blankets, which may include raised fibers and a more intricate texture, need a slightly adjusted approach:

  1. Preparation:

    • Begin by gently vacuuming the blanket with an upholstery attachment to remove any surface dust and dirt. This helps prevent any abrasive dirt particles from damaging the fibers during the wash.
  2. Washing:

    • Hand wash is preferred for woven tapestry blankets to control the amount of agitation. Repeat the steps outlined in the hand washing section above, being extra gentle with the fabric.
    • If machine washing is necessary, use the same precautions as for a regular tapestry—use a mesh bag, select a gentle cycle, and cold water.
  3. Drying:

    • Dry a woven tapestry blanket as recommended for a regular tapestry. Ensure it is laid flat to dry to maintain its shape. Reshape it while damp if any distortions are noticed.

Caring for Your Tapestry Between Washes

To keep your tapestry looking its best between washes:

Pairing your tapestry with a quality mattress like the Puffy Lux Mattress can provide not only aesthetic pleasure but also unmatched comfort, making it a perfect setting for relaxation.

Common Challenges and Solutions

When washing tapestry blankets, several issues can arise. Here are solutions to some common challenges:

I learned the importance of careful washing when our cherished tapestry blanket, a vibrant heirloom from my grandmother, got stained during a movie night. I hand washed it in a bathtub with cold water and mild detergent, gently agitating it rather than scrubbing.

After a thorough rinse and air-drying on towels, the blanket maintained its intricate patterns and colors beautifully. This careful process not only cleaned the blanket but preserved its quality, ensuring it could continue to be part of our family’s cozy evenings.


Properly washing and caring for your tapestry blanket can greatly extend its life and beauty. By following these detailed instructions, you’ll ensure that your tapestry remains a cherished part of your home decor. Whether used for extra warmth on a mattress or as a decorative throw, a well-maintained tapestry blanket is a testament to both comfort and style.
