This Synthetic Pocket filter is constructed with a moisture resistant, ultrasonically welded media. The synthetic media consists of strategically layered and blended melt-blown polypropylene fibers fastened to a non-shed, high density polypropylene backing. This design creates a dual-stage filtration effect with the final layer capturing the smaller particulate from the air stream. The patented ultrasonic welding process allows the filter to be manufactured without creating stich holes in the media while still providing an increased surface area. Vertical separators are incorporated into each pocket to effectively channel air throughout the media to prevent excessive turbulence and allow even contaminant loading throughout the life of the filter. The header is constructed of 26-gauge galvanized steel with rolled edges to provide rigid support to the filter face and allow for easier handling. The Synthetic Pocket filter offers high efficiency filtration while maintaining low resistance to air flow.

The 14 MERV Synthetic Bag Filter is not a washable filter.
Although, you “Can wash it” if it is being used to filter wood dust, but the filters performance will ultimately diminish over time.
That being said, you may not want to wash it. Below are the reasons (pro and con):
Pro – Wood dust is going to be fairly large, even if considered “fine”. I did a quick check and found that 99.9% of typical sawdust is 2 microns or larger. Particles that large won’t be affected very much at all when the washed filter loses its electrostatic charge (which will happen after a few washing's).
Con – It isn't going to be easy to wash out a pocket filter. You can’t really turn them inside out because of the spacers that are used to make sure they inflate to the right size. In fact, trying to get the dust out may just damage the filter enough that it wouldn’t be usable afterward. If you really want to reuse the filter, I would suggest hanging it upside down and trying to dislodge the dust mechanically (slapping the pockets or hitting it with compressed air bursts).
