Yarn Label Symbols
 

The yarn label contains a lot of valuable information - if you know how to read the symbols. Take the mystery out of those little symbols on the yarn labels with the information below.

Be aware that the yarn symbols used on the labels are not completely standardized among manufacturers, so the symbol may vary a bit from label to label. If you find a symbol that you cannot decode, just ask the helpful staff of Skein Lane.

Skein Lane recommends keeping your yarn labels in a journal with a sample of the yarn. This way, you will always know the care instructions, fiber content and name of your fibers.
