The woolens washed.
The vase broke.
Are both correct?
You can say "The woollens washed well" - meaning that they took the action of washing without damage.
It's better with the adverbial complement. I can think of occasions when it might colloquially be used without, such as the question "Did your clothes wash ok?" A. "Well, the woollens washed, but the silk didn't."
