Is it OK to machine wash Blue Sky Organic Cotton yarn?

I’m making a baby blanket for a friend’s mother, and so I want to be sure that she can machine-wash the blanket easily. The label on the hank said to hand-wash, but various sites that sell the yarn said machine-wash is fine. Is it fine to machine wash it, or how badly will machine washing damage the yarn?

The biggest problem is probably going to be shrinking. If this were clothing, that would be a big issue, but for a blanket, it should be alright.

It’s very important to note that when you give handmade gifts to a baby or child, they’re going to need frequent washings. I’d select a yarn designed for baby projects for that reason. Most are acrylic, probably for their washability.
