has anyone knit with organic cotton?

I'm about to knit a gift for a baby whose Mom is concerned about having all natural things for her baby. Lion Brand has a "Nature's Choice" organic cotton yarn made with all natural dyes. It is "hand wash only, lay flat to dry" which seems really impractical. Any advice? Other alternatives? Keep in mind I would really like a worsted weight so it won't take too too long. TIA

Check out Pakucho's organic cotton yarn. It can be hand or machine washed but does shrink 10 to 15%.
