Run a thin thin line of super glue across the edge of the ribbon (or Fray Check if you have it on hand) and the ribbon won't fray again.

I wash all our crocheted and knitted blankets normal normal

I also wash them normal normal too.
I figure if it's a blanket, no worries about it shrinking and not fitting - so I'm not spending the extra energy to dry it flat or anything like that. kwim?

Fingernail polish on the ends of the ribbons will also stop the fraying
