Washing microfleece - dumb question

I want to sew a pocket diaper so I got some solid-color microfleece at JoAnn's (50% off coupon today and tomorrow ) - well, the label on the bolt said to wash it in cold delicate cycle... are they serious? It's 100% polyester, so it's not like hot water is going to shrink it or something, right?

I am going to pre-wash it, because I pre-wash everything, so I guess I will wash it like a diaper and see whether something mysterious and dreadful happens? If you have used this stuff, please tell me whether I should just stop reading labels to save my sanity.

That is all I use. They might be more worried about the colorfastness of it than it shrinking. I have had no problems. I prewashed it on HOT and dried on HOT. It works great. I love their microfleece!

I haven;t settled on a pattern yet, I'm (alas) not that organized. I have seen a bunch of places with links to patterns though so shouldn't be too hard to find one... if there's no sticky list here yet there should be one at diaperpin and I forget where else
