I have some yarn that I cannot figure out what it is and whether it is washable or not. I love the yarn and it has the label. DSWV-HARLEKIN, Deutsche Wollverwertung, on the front of the label. The back - aus eigener deutscher Wolle hergestellt. Any suggestions where I might find out more about this yarn? Thanks

It says it's been made from their own German wool. Have you tried googling DSWV-HARLEKIN? Has it got the sign on the label showing a hand dipping into a tub half full of water? That means it's hand washable.

This is German, which I no longer speak. :D
If you have Bing, you can translate it there.
Best of luck!

Thanks for the quick replies. Yes it does have the hand dipping in the pan of water, so I was assuming it was washable probably, but wanted to make sure. There is another symbol that I have no idea what it is, and a P with a circle around it.

If I remember correctly, that could be the sign for dry cleaning, but I'm really not sure.
