Posted on Friday, October 17th
Description of Garment:
Blue Linen Shirt
Manufacturer: Loro Piana
RN#: Not available
Care Label Instructions: "Machine wash cold water"
Problem: The yarns in this fabric contain a resinous sizing agent. When this shirt was laundered according to the care label instructions, the friction caused by the sizing agents weakened the yarns, resulting in the deterioration of the fabric (holes).
Responsibility: The manufacturer's. The fabric contains a resinous sizing agent that has a degrading effect on the fibers of the fabric. This may result in the failure of the fabric during the laundering process.
Recommendation: If this shirt fails when laundered in accordance with the care label instructions, it should be returned to the place of purchase for a refund or exchange.
Drycleaner: Explain that the laundering of this shirt may result in the above-mentioned damage. Since there may be a potential serviceability issue surrounding this shirt, a signed release of liability should be obtained prior its acceptance for processing.
The NCA's Garment Analysis Laboratory examines thousands of garments every year for serviceability and FTC care labeling accuracy. The featured garment is a recurring item received for evaluation and, in testing, has failed to meet minimum industry standards. We have included the name or trade name of the fabric, the manufacturer, the RN number, if available, and a brief description of the problem.
