    pima cotton holds up well under normal wash, based on my experience. but if you must insist, then i guess handwashing them and drying them flat wouldn't hurt

    Most of my sweaters are pima. Just cold wash and tumble dry. I've had mine for 5-6 years now and they've held up well. They're made by brooks brothers.
