I am getting ready to sew up two fabrics from my stash for spring. One is a silk linen dobby and the other is a cotton 57%/silk 43%. Do I dare hand wash or dry clean? If I can wash either or both, do I dry in the dryer on delicate or air dry? I don't mind if they are dry clean only: I just don't want to ruin them. Any help from PR is greatly appreciated!

You could try washing a swatch to see. Place the scrap into a lingerie bag and toss in the wash with your other delicates.

I washed & dried a cotton/silk. Turned out very soft. I think the linen would do the same.
