But with regular vacuuming and cleaning can remove the “throw” without damaging the blanket.

Vacuum the blanket with a brush attachment once a week. The vacuum in the direction of the pile, not against it, in order to prevent damage to the plaid throw blanket fibers. After a few months of weekly vacuuming the blanket should show only minor signs of throwing.
