When I was laying out my clothes before going to bed, I noticed that the outer left pocket of one of my favorite hoodies was looking a tad gubby. Bleh. My first thought was to toss it in the washer on hand wash. But the label said "Dry Clean Only." Seems the outer cabled shell is polyester/acrylic/3% wool and the rest "other." Have no idea what "other" might mean.
But being occasionally distrustful of the need to dryclean certain things, I decided to wash it on "handwash" in the machine.
Here's the hoodie beneath the jacket:
I was disappointed at how badly it washed. I know. The label did say to dryclean it. But the surface did pill inordinately and the hoodie now looks kind of icky and cheap. ($24 at Sam's Club) I'll probably listen and dry clean the orange one that's constructed just like it.
