Featured in the PR book!
I like to mark my notes, and a ribbon tag in each garment with the Fabric Care Code for the fabric used (among other info.) These are the numbers inside the triangle on the bolt end of fabrics. Recently I had a terrible time finding a listing of these, and thought maybe others had too. Here is a link to them. click here

Thanks for the link, Liana. Since they no longer give out care labels, this helps a lot.

Thanks for this, My drycleaners make me sign a form saying they are not responsible for any damage as my garments do not have cleaning labels.

For years I have been wondering just how I was supposed to know how to clean my self-made garments. You have answered that question. THANK YOU.
