Learn about fabric careHOW TO CARE FOR WOOL FABRICS: Dry-cleaning is recommended, though some wools can take hand washing. Always test a swatch first if you are going to care for your wool fabrics at home rather than using a drycleaner. Many of the fine wools Mood sells online and in-store have already been "sponged," or preshrunk, but you can preshrink your wool if necessary. Mood recommends taking your uncut wool fabric to the drycleaners and asking them to steam it for you, which will safely preshrink it more effectively than you can using home methods. Mood strongly recommends test-laundering a swatch, if you plan to wash your garment or home furnishings yourself.

This listing says it is wool but it also mentions wool blend. It has to be a blend but that is a huge plus. It is a gorgeous knit jersey on one side and fuzzy on the back, perfect for a knit dress or set. I washed half of the swatch in a load of laundry, warm water, permanent press dryer, and it did not shrink at all. The wool might be a superwash but regardless, it has nylon in it and it washed beautifully. In fact the knit actually opened up a bit, bloomed and the fuzzy back is softer.
It has beautiful drape and if made into a dress, you could be dressy but feel like you're wearing a nightgown. This would make wonderful lounge pants too. Remember, the fuzzy side is next to the skin.
Huge bonus: it's washable!
Love, love, love this. Wish it came in other colors too!
