Laundry Symbols

Do you panic just a bit when you see those cute laundry symbols on a yarn label?  What water temperature should this be washed in?  Is it machine-washable?  What on earth do these little symbols mean?

This wonderful chart clearly explains the meaning of each symbol -- no more confusion.  Hope you find this chart as useful as I did!
