I highly recommend hand washing your knit items in cool or lukewarm water using a pH neutral wool wash to keep them looking amazing for as long as possible.
I use colorfast acid dyes for dying my yarn, and rinse until water runs clear. However, there is a chance some dye may bleed slightly in the first couple of washes of your finished item. Because of this, I do recommend that you wash your items separately, especially for the first couple of washes. If you have them available it is always a good idea to use a "color catcher", similar to dryer sheets and often found in the laundry section. Some dyes are more prone to bleeding then others such as highly saturated (e.g. reds, pinks) or spekled skeins, this happens to hand dyed wool just as commercially dyed wool.
Please be advised washing in hot water is not recommended as it may break the bond between the fiber and the dye and could cause bleeding.
