Most of our FaeryWear is made of the finest silks and silk velvets and has been washed and distressed to perfect softness before being sent out into the world. That means most of it is easy to care for and can be safely washed by hand or gently by machine. The chiffons can hang to dry and they dry very quickly! The velvets can be dried by machine with a fabric softener sheet and you will love how they feel! Please be aware that any tattered edges and other signs of being worn while sleeping under brambles are intentional because...have you ever seen a faery with a hem?
