How do you clean a Pendleton wool blanket?

Can I wash a wool blanket in the washing machine?
Wash Heavily Soiled Wool Blankets by Placing Them in the Washer with Cold Water and a Wool-Safe Detergent. Place blankets in the washing machine and allow them to soak for 15 minutes in the detergent-and-water mixture. Set the washer to the gentle cycle and let it run for two minutes.
Should you dry clean wool blankets?
For best results, always follow the manufacturer’s recommended care instructions. If your washing machine has a dedicated wool cycle setting, use that in place of the “delicate” or “hand-wash” cycle to clean a wool blanket. Dry-clean-only garments or linens should only be laundered by professional dry cleaners.
