Make sure when you wash and dry it to check your filters, as they will get a lot of threads in them. The more you wash, the better it fringes.
I would add: If you have one of the newer type washing machines, I'd go to the laundrymat because, as the repairman told me, the new water-saving machines have very little clearance around the automatic filters and stop up very easily. A few quarters at the laundrymat is sure cheaper than a service call, believe me !!! This is just one of many reasons why I wish I had gotten my old machine repaired instead of buying the new one 4 years ago.
I used DH's worn out bluejeans for this "rag Christmas vest" and lined with flannel.
