This is a set of 8 matching Fiber Care tags. Attach them to your lovely handknits, telling the lucky recipient what fibers you used, and how to properly care for them!
The design, which complements my "HANDS KNIT No. 2 Maine 1921" Note Card & Postcard gift sets, began with a vintage snapshot of a woman knitting in a boat on a Maine lake, which I restored then digitally altered and colorwashed with shades of mauve and lavender.
Beside the knitting woman is the text "Hand Knit". My original design is surrounded by festive purple stars.
Fiber Care Wording
On the back, I print "Fiber Content" and "Fiber Care", against a light purple background of spirals.
How I Make Them
I hand-cut each tag to measure approximately 3-1/2 inches x 2 inches, and attach a matching satin tie.
(The ribbon will vary as shown here, including mauve, lavender or purple. Let me know if you have a preference!)
I print my design on heavyweight 80-lb. cream card stock, using a combination of ink jet pigmented inks for brilliance, and color laser toner for permanence.
Packing & Shipping
I slip each tag set into a cello sleeve as shown here, and ship it in a protective cardboard mailer.
I'm happy to ship anywhere in the world, so if you don't see your destination on my list, email me for a custom shipping quote.
