Then I have come across this question quite often:
Can you dry clean a knitted or crocheted afghan/blanket?
The answer is to look at the label the yarn comes in. It will tell you how to wash it. If you don’t have the labels anymore, or someone gave you a blanket, take it to the dry-cleaner and ask them. Chances are, they know fabrics and will be able to tell if it should be washed by hand, machine or dry-cleaned.
