Finishing an old bedspread

I am trying to finish a very old bedspread that was started by my grandmother and stored for years. The spread was about 70% finished and extra thread stored with the original spread. I have been able to determine the pattern and the gauge but the pieces I've finished are very stiff compared to her original pieces. Is there a technique that "softens" the thread as you crochet?
