The other day Claudia mentioned taking her husband's koigu socks out of the washing machine. What! She machine washed Koigu! I asked her about, and she replied she has never had a problem although they get a little fuzzy. Well I sort of tried it the other day. I put the Pomatomus in the lingerie bag and into the washer*. The result:
No guarantees on your socks. I may even get bold and try it outside of the bag. I am not going to try the merino that the FHS and Denmark socks are made of since it is very fuzzy and there were two parts in the ball that were almost felted together already.
* do I need to mention on cold and they did not go in the dryer.
