55% silk, 40% cotton, 5% cashmere -- wash how?

I have a thin sweater-like v-neck that's 55% silk, 40% cotton, and 5% cashmere; and I need to wash it. The thing is, it stretched out a bit from wearing it, and I'd like to shrink it back into shape. Can it be washed in a washing machine safely? Or is this a definite dry-cleaning situation?

Best answer: in cool water, hand wash or machine wash (alone) on gentle cycle with a special fabric shampoo. Dry flat.
