I bought this fabulous knit jacket. It's clearly machine knit, but not like most machine knits where the gauge is like 40 stitches to the inch, it looks like DK and I love it (and I'm contemplating telling people, why yes, I did knit this. j/k! ;-)) Anyway, the care instructions say Dry Clean.... it's 80% wool, 20% nylon, which to me says washable... Can I just use Eucalan or similar you think? There's nothing fancy about it, ribbed bottom, collar, and cuffs, rest in stockinette...

Thanks!
