At the Historic Traders division of the National Market Traders association agm at Tewkesbury last, they had a Trading standards less giiving a talk - one of the questions asked on labelling was what to do if you were not sure of the composition of the fabric used - she told us that it was acceptable in these cases to put " mixed fibres " for this and for when the beakdown of percentage wasn't known.
As far as wash insructions - I either label dry clean only or handwash with care if appropriate.

At the risk of being jumped on from a great height - I think it would need to be consistenly moderated so that any of this type of thing is politely nipped in the bud very quickly.
where was the warehouse!!
I remember looking at a pair of walking socks to see what the composition was. You know 60% wool 40% poly... No, "100% mixed fibres"
Despite Debs trying to curb my pop habit!
I much prefer to let "the market place" decide whether a trader is offering the right goods at the right price.
However if it was proven to my complete satisfaction that trader X had deliberately misled a customer over something to that customers detriment, that is a very different matter.
