what happens when you clean stuff
It was on my mother's bed for all eternity but when the big box stores started selling faux down spreads, she was all over them. This went into a drawer and eventually, to me.
Rarely used, but recently spent some months in a den of iniquity and so I decided a gentle wash was in order.
I didn't notice the damage when it came out of the washer, but after it tumbled in the dryer, I found it had four, large tears. Like the cloth just gave up under its own weight and split. The fringes were hella tangled too.
I'm debating if and whether to repair it. I shall consult the den of iniquity.
