The Secret Language of Care Labels

We'll admit it: working at the Woolen Mill Store does tend to inspire quite a bit of fabric nerdiness.  It's not just limited to wool, either!

When we came across this nifty chart interpreting the standard symbols for washing and dry cleaning, we just had to share.

And here's an interesting little fact about cleaning instructions: if there is more than one possible way to clean a garment, the label does not have to include all methods.  Most manufacturers will pick the best (safest, most reliable) cleaning method and list only that one in order to help their products last!
