Basic Guidelines for Items that require Testing:
- Any fabric that contains wool or cashmere. e.g. skirts, sweaters, rugs, scarves, etc.
- Any fabric that contains linen or has a linen look (slubs througout fabric, yarns of uneven thickness, tweed and multi- colored fabric
- Items that have inner components concealed by lining (i.e. shoulder pads, canvases, appliqués, etc.) even if outer fabric does not contain wool or linen. E.g. suit jackets, tuxedos, coats, Russian fur hats.
- Women’s and children’s clothing require testing (despite common misconception)
