Ways to recycle wool blankets

I thrifted a wool blanket from a charity shop long time ago thinking I could recycle it into something but never came up with a good idea. I was thinking maybe I could make a wool nappy cover out of it but since it's a woven not knitted one I didn't think it would work well. Plus DD has eczema so I was advised by our doctor not to use wool on her.

Anyway I found this link helpful. It gives a few very good ideas on recycling a wool blanket. I like the following and maybe try them one day:

1. use as batting in a quilt
2. sleep bag. Why didn't I think of that?
3. as padding in pot holders and hot pads.
