Back in December, I posted about legislation which was passed to protect children from harmful substances in clothing, toys, and other products. However well-intentioned this legislation may have been, it was apparently drafted without proper attention to the practical issues involved with compliance, and it appears that it will devastate the businesses of many companies–especially small ones–and will greatly reduce product diversity.
It appears that homecrafters may also run into trouble with this law: where knitting and government meet.
