No, it is not recommended to wash or dry clean caps.
Due to color variations of dye lots, exact color matches of material are not guaranteed. In camouflage patterns, variations may occur in the placement of certain areas of the pattern due to random cutting. Certain distressed materials will have shading variations.  Color matches are not guaranteed to be exact, whether PMS colors or color swatches. Every effort is made to match with no extra charge. All materials print differently; therefore, there may be a variation of print colors on orders of different materials or colors. When decorating on camouflage, no guarantees can be made that the pattern will not interfere with decoration (i.e. a branch, leaf or bark may fall behind decoration). Cap America is not responsible for fabric bleeding which may occur when imprinting a light color on a dark fabric. It is not recommended to place a white imprint on a red or black cap because the imprint may have a pink or gray hue. Distressed materials in all colors have a tendency to bleed into light-colored embroidery threads and prints.
