Can a washer or dryer put holes in cashmere?

My boss gave me laundry to do and I didn t realize there was a cashmere sweater in the load. When I got it out of the dryer, there were holes. I have no clue if they were there before. There s A LOT of holes. Could this have been the dryer or washer or would they have to have been from before?
