Machine washing Lion Wool
i know it says "hand wash," but for some reason i think it would do just fine in a cold, gentle wash cycle. has anyone tried machine washing Lion Wool?

It's handwash only because it's 100% wool. It will felt if you try to wash it in the washing machine. Try washing a swatch in the washer and see what happens.
