Hand wash items - does anyone else boycott them?

I’m sure merino wool jumpers are slightly nicer to wear than a normal jumper but is it really worth the heartache when you accidentally throw the sodding thing on a 30 degree wash and it turns into an Action Man jumper that’s as thick as it is long?

For the last few years I just haven’t bothered. My life is too busy to faff about gently washing things in the sink.

Does anyone else avoid buying something they like the look of if it is a ‘hand wash only’ garment?
