If it is a closed weave it should work.
These hold water and water makes them cold & damp, chilled so be careful. They can also get heavy with the added moisture and stretch out of shape if not careful. Make sure it dries fully before folding and putting away or they do mold and smell icky...
I see my friends use these after giving a bath in springtime...draft free and the sun helps to warm & dry the horse and sheet.
Only line dry your blankets and sheets...most horse stuff will shrink out of shape and get lumps in the blanket warmth filling material from the dryer after cleaning.
