The first section below includes information you might find useful when planning your order. The second section will help if you are looking for handmade products, but I don't have quite what you want.
I do not include sites that contain objectionable material. Please contact me if you would like details about my standards.
Information for Customers
Standard Body Measurements/Sizing
Yarn Standards offers several sizing charts. These charts show Chest, Center Back Neck-to-Cuff, Back Waist Length, Cross Back, and Sleeve Length actual body measurements for babies, children, women, and men. These measurements are given in both inches and centimeters. When sizing sweaters, the fit is based on actual chest/bust measurements, plus ease (additional inches or centimeters). The chart entitled “Fit” recommends the amount of ease to add to body measurements if you prefer a close-fitting garment, an oversized garment, or something in-between.

Fabric University explains basic care requirements for many different fibers. It also links to tips on removal of particular stains. The Consumer Guide has links to many other types of fabric- and fiber-related information.
