Was there supposed to be some news today from the CPSC? I thought Jan 5th was a deadline...?

Today was the day they're having an inhouse vote on natural materials.

If the CPSC rules to exempt natural material, is there still hope they could exempt synthetic fabrics? Or is this decision final on exemptions?

Julie Vallese, spokesman for the Consumer Product Safety Commission, says they are looking into exemptions for small retailers and toymakers and hope to resolve the matter soon.

"The Commission is very much aware of the looming deadline," said Vallese.

Has anyone else heard about this? What does it mean to the handcrafter?

It's a start, right?

That is a step in the right direction for many and I am truly happy for those that it helps but unless the apparel maker is going to make a completely natural color line, that doesn't help much. I guess I am pouting selfishly.

The CPSC exempted wool, cotton, silk, gemstones and pearls in its proposal today.


Does anyone know if it's all wool and cotton or just undyed?

I got really excited when I read that but the actual proposal states they have to be untreated and unadulterated by the addition of dyes, pigments, etc. The only way these fabrics will be exempt is if they are in their natural state.

I knew it.....I read the Bloomberg report and thought "cool, wool, cotton, silk. That's a good step....but I bet there's more..." Yep, I knew it would only be undyed. I knew it. They won't be happy until we all look like we just stepped out of some 1980's bad scifi movie, and yes that is redundant.

Raw undyed silk, with clean, 'certified' thread....no lace...you could still make a gorgeous christening gown...and in a couple of months possibly make a bit of $$$ something tells me.

can you tell me where I can find this info? I am seeing a lot of posts by people who saw on their local news that "all children's clothes are now exempt from the new law" because of this ruling, but I can't actually find anything clearer than the bloomberg story (which isn't specific at all). I'm assuming it's the undyed stuff they were talking about before, but I can't find anything about Monday's ruling specifically.

Yes indeed, the news reports are wrong. I just found the actual ballot: http://www.cpsc.gov/library/foia/foia09/brief/leadlimits.pdf

And it specifically says: "The staff recommends that these findings only apply to a material that is untreated and unadulterated by the addition of materials or chemicals including pigments, dyes, coats, finishes or any other substance, and has not undergone any processing that could result in lead content that exceeds the CPSIA lead limits"

So this will not effect children's clothing hardly at all (except for a few undyed t-shirts!).
