Care instructions for an old blanket
Okay, here's the deal:

I have a crocheted blanket that my mother made many years ago. I don't know what type of yarn it is, it feels like acrylic and isn't very soft. Seeing as she passed away nearly 20 years ago, the blanket is very important to me and I want to take care of it but it needs to be washed since it's been living in a garage in Queens for many years.

Should I just be safe and hand wash it in the tub with laundry detergent or pop it in the washing machine on a delicate setting. It seems very sturdy, and can take pictures if necessary for you to make an assessment.

Many thanks!
