Rated 5 out of 5 by Shelagh Oh Dear! Washed It, With Good Results
While it says, plain as can be, that this fabric is dry clean only (and not suitable for what I planned because of it), I threw it into the washer with similar colors, used warm water on a normal cycle, tumble-dried it for ten minutes or so, then let it air-dry the rest of the way.
It came out great! I certainly don't recommend mistreating fabrics or ignoring care instructions, but if you are considering this luscious stretch velvet with impressive color depth, it might be a great choice for something which might need the occasional wash, as our Santa hats will.
BTW, the color is a rich deep wine; the picture doesn't do it justice.
