Cucinelli: do I have to follow the washing instructions?

HI all:

There's a store here in Ankara that seems to be where Cucinelli comes to die: shirts in the 200TL (about $95US) range. Needless to say, they're beautiful. I would have bought a couple, but the washing instructions universally say hand wash, rub with unicorn before drying, and so on forward. My question: if I have a small personal washer rather than an industrial thing, would it be OK to not follow the instructions, at least in re: to hand drying? I would lay them out somewhere flat to dry. Knowing myself, I just don't imagine that I would actually get around to hand-washing frequently.

I'm a teacher by profession, incidentally, so most of my job consists of telling students they need to follow the instructions. The irony of this is not lost on me. And thank you of course for your advice.

I wash all my shirts on gentle setting and COLD temperature. Then hang dry and iron.
