Linen tends to be unstable. If it's not been pre-shrunk it could shrink quite a bit. Randomly.

They say you can wash linen, and I have done so on cheap linen shirts. I wouldn't do it to my RLPL long sleeve linen shirt I just bought though. I would dry clean only if I were you.

I wash my linen shirts in the laundry machine myself, and I have never fonud that to be a problem. Admittedly, all pf my linen shirts are pretty high quality stuff, so I am not sure how cheaper garments would fair. I used to send my linen to the dry cleaners, but I found 1) that it would come back rougher than when I sent it out, and 2) if you get someone who irons it without using a piece of cloth between the iron and the shirt that the shirt can take on a "sheen," which doesn't look good.

Wash cold on delicate cycle and line dry or dry laying flat. That's what I do with anything I feel is very delicate/fragile and it works pretty well.
