The Ikea ones say I can
The Debenhams ones say don't wash

yes you can.
choose a wool/handwash setting.
do not use bio detergent, use wool detergent (or shampoo). dry in tumble dryer on low or lie flat to dry, shaking and fluffing up every now and then.
be prepared for a 'wet dog' smell until they are dry.

Yes - we washed ours on a hot wash in the laundrette with some non bio detergent a scoop of oxy clean. Worked a treat.

Put 3 tennis balls in the dryer with it afterwards and dry on low heat. The tennis balls will stop the feathers from sticking together
