At the Historic Traders division of the National Market Traders association agm at Tewkesbury last, they had a Trading standards less giiving a talk - one of the questions asked on labelling was what to do if you were not sure of the composition of the fabric used - she told us that it was acceptable in these cases to put " mixed fibres " for this and for when the beakdown of percentage wasn't known.
As far as wash insructions - I either label dry clean only or handwash with care if appropriate.
quite a lot who do trade regularly aren't members.some of us who don't trade regularly are not members of the NMTF.
JUMP tee heeAt the risk of being jumped on from a great height - I think it would need to be consistenly moderated so that any of this type of thing is politely nipped in the bud very quickly.
should have said "my house"!!!where was the warehouse!!
yeah, which is really helpful if you're like half of my customers and allergic to stuff.I remember looking at a pair of walking socks to see what the composition was. You know 60% wool 40% poly... No, "100% mixed fibres"

I much prefer to let "the market place" decide whether a trader is offering the right goods at the right price.
actually happens more than I'm sure anyone would like, but in these days of libel and all that, you have to be carefult what you say about it and to whom. as I said somewhere above, those who do that don't usually stick around for long, but we do all get tarred with the same 'bah - traders - bah' brush.However if it was proven to my complete satisfaction that trader X had deliberately misled a customer over something to that customers detriment, that is a very different matter.
