I have washed the grey & white check Jenny Lund chair cover which says dry clean only

It was very stiff & weird when it came out but turned soft again as it dried

Which design is it?

I have washed all the cushion covers but not the main cover that goes over the base of the sofa. It was fine. I cant remember what setting I did it on though.

The fabric on mine is

50% viscose/rayon, 30% linen, 20% polyester

Just cotton & polyester should be ok

I haven't bought it yet , atm have the white cotton ones which wash well. Don't want to buy this if i need to dry-clean it.

Yes, washed both covers & the cushion covers no problem. Washed on 30 & think they didn't shrink at all. Took a lot of ironing though!

Iron while damp - much easier. Put them on the sofa straight away after ironing and you get a much better fit too. The weird stiffness someone reported upthread is likely to be due to viscose/rayon content.
