Labeling Requirements for USA

I was politely but firmly told that my Knit. Tuck. Or Float post was boring, rambling and not relevant to anything. But as a student of author David Allen and his “Ready for Anything” books, I’m using my Blog to park ideas.

Still - I’ll save Body sized tee shirts verses those with a side seam, the number of needles in a machine and the corresponding ends of yarn being fed into a machine at one time, and other great facts for later.
Let’s move to apparel labeling requirements for the USA. I must commend someone in the government for their sense of humor as many of these free informative booklet's have cute titles like this one called Threading Your Way Through the Labeling Requirements Under the Textile and Wool Acts
Check it out at this link http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/business/textile/bus21.shtm

I wish the Federal Trade Commission and their Writing a Care Label http://www.textilecare.com/writing.htm booklet and the Consumer Product Safety folks and their textile Flammable Fabrics Act http://www.cpsc.gov/businfo/ffa.pdf (and no this isn't just for children's sleepwear) would all get together and publish one booklet.

More later, sincerely,
The Underwear Maven
