Yes! You have a lot more yarn choices in non-superwash, that is for sure. I hate, hate, hate taking care of clothes. We have a cleaning lady who does our laundry, that's how much I hate doing the wash (in my defense, our condo doesn't allow washer/dryers in the units, so it is a lot more of a pain than in a regular house). The upshot is that I DO still have to do the handwash/dry cleaning myself. I haven't minded taking care of my hand knit sweaters a bit. First, I always wear something underneath so I don't have to wash them every single time I wear them. Then I usually Dryell them several times before they need to be actually washed. I'm not actually sure they ever really need to be washed, but I just have this conviction that at some point they need real soap and water. If I didn't wash them, I would send o the dry cleaners, but I've heard of sweaters coming back felted. If the sweater is going to get ruined during cleaning, I'd rather it be me that did it!
Drying is kind of a pain because our place is small and lacks a nice, out-of-the-way flat suface.
Anyway, this is the opinion of the laziest person on this entire bb when it comes to washing/taking care of things, so I say go for it!
