How do I keep my blankets from shedding lint all over the place? (Alternatively, please help me find blankets that do not shed.)

I like very soft, fuzzy blankets (think Snuggie-type fabric). I dislike that they shed lint all over the couch and all over my clothes. Literally, I have devoted hours to plucking lint off these stupid things.
What am I doing wrong? It seems to get worse after I wash them, so I figure there must be a special method to washing them that I'm unaware of. Fabric softener? Line dry, not dryer? Some magical detergent that gets rid of lint? Use a lint roller on the entire blanket after every use? There has to be something I can do!
As an alternative, can anybody recommend soft, fuzzy blankets that don't shed?
