How to Label Winter ClothingLucinda Winston
Which labels are best for winter jackets and knitted accessories?
The winter season, for many people, means digging out that trunk of knitted scarves, mittens and hats, and padded winter jackets. Winter is a wonderful time to relish the chill in the air, enjoy winter sports and savor the feeling of warming up when getting home.
However, it is almost inevitable that over the course of the winter, the odd scarf or glove will unfortunately go missing! This is especially true for children’s belongings as they travel back and forth to school, and to their extra-curricular activities.
- For loose knit items, such as scarves or bobble hats, discreet and yet easy-to-read personalized sewing labels can help the item get returned to its rightful owner if mislaid. These labels can be attached with just a few stitches at each end and can easily be removed if the item is handed on to another person.
- For padded jackets and vests with smooth fabric linings, iron on clothing labels are ideal, and just take seconds to apply. These waterproof labels – either woven or printed – can also go through the washing machine and dryer – perfect for when items end up coming home muddy or soiled.
- For winter items that are hard, such as ski boots and helmets, rain boots, sleds, etc. a printed waterproof stick on name label is a great way to make sure that a missing item is handed in. Available in a range of different sizes, shapes and designs, these are a super-easy way to identify valuable items.
