I need a recommendation of something that is beautifully soft but machine washable. I'm looking for 10 ply weight.

Linda Snell would recommend llama wool! She used that for step grandson!

Machine Washable, again and again for an even softer blanket will be the best option.
I got few blankets from The Wool Company. It keeps my babies snug at night.
