The care label clearly states the pants should be drycleaned but I know I can wash my 100% linen shirts, so why can't 100% linen pants be washed, as well? These pants are unlined, by the way. I'd probably wash in cold (or lukewarm) water, gentle cycle, and then hang to dry (or perhaps machine dry using the lowest heat setting possible). What is everyone's thoughts on this? Thank you.
