Re: is your kit washing machine safe?

Aragorn in the final revision is described as wearing "Rusty greens and browns", which we have interpreted to modern language as being "faded". Wool tends to acquire pips and other 'raised texture' over time due to rubbing, etc. After LOTS of use, the fibers can begin to pull apa...
