Care

 

The Dress 

The dresses have been pre-washed removing initial shrinkage. The linen can be machine washed and dried with cold water and gentle cycle. Desert Veil prefers to hand wash and sun dry the linen, then pops the dress in the dryer for a couple minutes to fluff. Linen loves the sun, wind and fresh air. 


The Ponchos and Veils 

The ponchos and veils are made with a sheer fine linen. The linen will shrink 5-10% if machine dried. We recommend hand washing and laying flat to dry in the sun. Linen responds beautifully to sun, wind and fresh air. If you'd like to shrink or fluff the piece, pop in the dryer for a couple of minutes. 

The Chinati Collection

The ponchos purchased through Chinati Foundation can be machine washed and dried with cold water and gentle cycle. Desert Veil hand washes and sun dries the linen, then pops the dress in the dryer for a couple minutes to fluff. Linen loves the sun, wind and fresh air.
