Wore the indigo linen Doyle today. Awesome fabric, fit etc.

Some of the indigo rubbed off on my trou, what’s the best way to prevent this in the future (if preventable)
Option A: Cold wash, hang dry
Option B: Dry clean
Option C: something else?

If option A, will a cold wash/hang dry cause any shrinkage?
@Epaulet :

Just bumping to see if you had any thoughts on "setting" the indigo?

Sure, I’d say to have it dry cleaned and pressed. Usually that high heat will remove any excess dye... that’s what Hertling uses when they handle indigo linen
