Wash & Wear with Caution



Not exactly what you'd expect on a clothing label, is it?

BUT this was the cautionary wording on a Lands' End sweater recently bought at a local thrift store; the label stated that was USA made

Here's the care label and the full text of that warning label, with the price solely for the purpose of a post — not costly, as you will see later.
It's certain that I won't be wearing this sweater near a flame/fire — who would anyway?

Maybe that's WHY it was on the sales rack — 49¢ was a very "HOT" bargain.

Now THAT is scary! Not something to wear to a bonfire celebration or if you burn trash. Geez!

That was the most interesting labels I have ever seen on a sweater or anything else, for that matter. Scary, scary.

Disclaimers/Warnings take on epic proportions in these litigious days.

Hi Folks, forgot to include in the original post that this Lands End sweater is a U.S. made product.

I haven't seen that in a label before!

Well gee, I've never seen that on a label before!

Well..good for them for warning folks of the dangers. I am not fond of "intense" heat anyway. NICE sweater. One of my new favorite colors to wear! :) Such a deal, my friend!

Very unusual for sure!

This is a requirement for cotton fabric. It can catch fire. But polyester doesn't burn, so they use that for children's pajamas. Polyester does melt, though and can cause horrible burns, so I'll stick with cotton and stay away from open flames.

My new bluejeans have a tag on them that has been in with the jeans in a die bath. I would have thought the material would be already the color before they sewed it.

Well that is very different to me. Have never seen such a label but I would have spent the 49 cents immediately on it, take it home and run it through the washer...maybe you could Google Lands End and inquire.

Yep, I always take extra caution when burning my sweaters. :)

Scares me a bit. The problem with so many things now is that if you avoid all the dangerous things you could not use anything at all.

That looks like a good old cotton Land's End sweater all right. We've bought a few over the years and I should go back and check the labels- I've never seen anything like that!
