Fabric Care Tags

Okay, I hate putting the label of the yarn skein in with a present. At least three times now, the giftee has held it out without looking at it, thinking I left it in by accident. But they need to know how to take care of it!

Fine. Next knitted present gets one of these, available at Purlescence (of course) in the UK.

I mean, look how cute! And how practical! Robynn’s description:

The reverse has space for fibre content and fibre care; two tags in each set of 9 are specifically for handspun yarn, with space also to record the skein’s colour and yardage.

Even if you were to, ahem, copy the idea, it’s such a good one.

    These are great. I love the old fashioned look of them. It certainly turns the ‘care for’ instructions into a gift tag!

      I know! I may have to get a set just to have around in case when I get back to the UK. I know I could make my own, but the big question there, of course, is WILL I? :)
