Cleaning and caring for your blankets

Grubby little fingers are everywhere :)

We get it! You want your blanket to stay awesome all the time, but then life (and little fingers) get in the way. Well, your Thula Tula blanket is up to the task. First off, your blankets is made from the very finest wool and fibers. Our factory in South Africa has been doing this for 67 years, they know how to make an exceptional blanket that repels dirt and liquid. For normal use, we recommend only washing once a year. When it's wash time here are a few tips to get you on your way.

Cold Wash

For all wool-based blankets, use a cold wash and rinse. Wash separately or with similar colors


Use a very mild wool-specific detergent. Do not use bleach; We recommend using Laundress

Hang Dry

Line, Hang dry, or lay flat. We do not recommend tumble dry as the heat will shrink and damage your blanket

No ironing

Do not iron! It will burn the fibers of your blanket. Especially the Basotho Blanket. With the proper care will be in your family for generations

Cold water

Fill a bath tub with cold water to the quarter mark


Pour a cup of course salt into the water.


Submerge your blanket into the water and allow it to soak for at least 30 minutes.

Wash and rinse

Wash it with your hands then drain out all the water. Pour enough cold water to almost cover the blanket to rinse. Gently squeeze out water and hang to dry

Mali Mud Cloth Blanket

Beautiful blanket!

Love this blanket. Unexpected color combo of mink/cream is so modern. Most mud cloth I have seen is black and white. I have it on my king size bed and it fits nicely although there is not much overhang. Makes it easier to make the bed.

I received my Congo Kuba blanket a few days ago and I just love it! The fabric is thick and so soft. It's of excellent quality and well made in terms of stitching and the Kuba pattern. The ordering and shipping process was smooth and timely. I will definitely buy from Thula Tula again. I also love that they are helping the artists of Africa.

I chose the Xhosa Stripe pattern because I wanted something that was going to pop and catch my eye, and work well with my cottage-farmhouse style.

 I could not be more pleased with the high quality and craftsmanship.

Different fabric

Just can't hold a candle to my Mud Cloth blanket that I LOVE!

Hi Susan - I love the Mali Mud Cloth blanket as well. It's my favorite blanket we have!
The Mud Cloth Throw from this review, is priced much lower than the blanket due to the different materials and much smaller size.
