To answer that, we would need to know the color and what type of yarn. To clean something wool would be much different than if it were of cotton yarn. And if it were white, it would be different than if it were a pale pastel.

However, I would start by soaking in a solution of cool water with some Dawn in it. Swish and squeeze it, and change water if needed until the water is clear. Rinse the same way and lay flat to dry. If it has any color in it or is wool, do not put in the sun. If it is white and has no wool yarn, you could lay flat in the sunlight to dry.

Any additional cleaners used on it would be determined by the type and color of the yarn.
