Silk Equipment shirts - do you have to dry clean?

I'd love to treat myself to one of these shirts but the dry cleaning thing puts me off. Does anyone wash their shirt in a delicates or wool cycle?

I do mine on the silk cycle on my machine and they're fine!

Thanks amber - what cut do you recommend for a slim hourglass - I think you might be a similar shape to me - not that I'm stalking you? wink

So I have two signatures in XS and a slim signature in S. All a good fit. I am an 8 and, as you rightly state, hourglass!

Mine also fine in machine, I use silk/wool detergent on delicates wash cycle. Sadly not your body shape, though, so no advice on styles!

I machine wash mine cold too.

I actually think they are better dry cleaned - the silk just stays a lot nicer and I've got a few of them.

I handwash mine and when damp put in the dryer on a low heat to save ironing.
