Superwash laceweight
I have been looking at laceweight superwash yarns lately, and I find that sometimes the shops will put 'hand wash' under care even though the yarn is marked superwash. What is the reason for this? And what would be the point of the yarn being superwash if you can't machine wash it? I'm puzzled, and a little scared of accidentally ruining a project that I would have spent time and money on.

This is an example: http://www.tangled-yarn.co.uk/brand/...prod_1397.html

Thanks!
