About Acrylics

If you dry-clean acrylics, they may lose their warmth and “loft”—that fluffy or buoyant texture—and become flatter, thinner, and harder. It’s better to wash them in warm (not hot) suds on a gentle machine cycle. Tumble-dry in a cool dryer since wrinkles may set in a hot dryer. Be sure that trims, facings, etc., are also washable.—Margaret Childs, Brigham Young University Department of Clothing and Textiles
