Wool Products Labeling Act Law and Legal Definition
The Wool Products Labeling Act of 1939 is a federal law that requires persons manufacturing or selling products containing wool to accurately label each item with the fiber content and origin. Violations of the Act can result in seizure and destruction of mislabeled goods, civil fines and/or criminal penalties.
The term wool under the Act means the fiber from the fleece of the sheep or lamb or hair of the Angora or Cashmere goat (and may include the so-called specialty fibers from the hair of the camel, alpaca, llama, and vicuna) which has never been reclaimed from any woven or felted wool product. [15 USCS § 68].
