All yarn companies/sellers have their own way of creating labels. Some are really self explanatory and some are not. They include symbols that you might not have any idea what they mean at all.
Why does reading the yarn label matter so much?
First of all, if you want to sell anything you make or gift items you make, you are probably going to want to let the receiver know how to care for that item. How do you know how to care for that item? By reading the yarn label! It will tell you what the appropriate way to wash that particular yarn is so you can share that information with anyone who is receiving the finished product from you.
Come along as we take a look at several different yarn labels.
