Home Economics Pamphlet No. 2
What is the wearing quality of garments made from blends of new and reclaimed wool? How do they compare with clothes made from all new wool? That percentage of' reclaimed wool may be used in a fabric without seriously decreasing its serviceability? These are a few of the questions in the minds of many homemakers today as they buy clothes for their families. They realize that wool manufacturers are now making a common practice of extending their stock of new wool by blending it with reclaimed wool. They also know that these manufacturers are required by law to indicate in the form of labels the percentage of each type or wool used in any product containing wool.
