    Just got a new wool pants and supposedly we should only dry clean them,
    but I wash it like usual in a washing machine and it's fine.

    Do you only dry clean your wool clothings?

    Supposedly? I'd hate to see the waistband on those.

    Yes and rarely at that.

    I handwash wool trousers in cool water and then press them myself with no problem. Have no choice sometimes when a dry cleaner is not available.
