Yarn Care


You'll notice that Lion Brand Yarn labels now feature universal care symbols. Rather than using long, complicated washing and cleaning instructions for your yarn we've opted for a more streamlined approach. This page shows some of the symbols you will find on our labels and how to understand them.
