I think some of you may have addressed this but I am really perplexed by this care and content label stuff.  I have been doing a lot of reading on what care and content labels have to legally be affixed to your handmade apparel etc and I think I have figured out that by law you have to have labels sewn (or permanently affixed) to your apparel that include the manufacturer name (i.e. my biz name is KnitAddictions), fiber content, country of origin (i.e. made in the USA or crafted in the USA with imported products), and care instructions. 

My problem is that I use yarns that are often a blend of fibers, like wool and mohair, acrylic and wool etc.  I was looking at all these woven label suppliers and they have stock labels that are 100% wool, cotton, polyester etc, but they don't custom make labels for fiber blends.  So what do I do?  I'm trying to follow all the legalities for selling my products.  I have thought of making my own labels and have seen that some of you print labels on your computer.  How does that work?  Do you have a problem with the ink washing off?

HELP!!!!! Huh

You could print onto iron-on transfer paper and then iron onto fabric or ribbon and sew in.  The iron-on shouldn't rub or wash off.  Or you can have custom labels made -- which would cost more than ironing-on for small amounts, but if you need a lot of labels it would be much cheaper and easier to go this route (I think).
