What everyone else said. Linen can be tossed in the drier, the poorer

drier and only the cheap stuff is falling apart after 5 years).
I always wash and dry my fabric (including silk, wool depends on the type)
twice at high temperature, even if the end piece will only ever be cold
washed and air dried. It's also a good idea to toss in a small square of
white muslin the first time you're washing a new fabric to see if the dye
