Sian Robson, a university manager from Ashford, Kent was alerted to the label in the woolly hat thanks to her 13-year-old daughter Caitlin.

The item, which had come from the retailer Missguided, had a small note at the bottom of the washing instructions which read:

...or give this to your mum she'll wash it.

Sian shared a picture of the image on social media. She queried why someone's dad couldn't handle the washing.

What is obviously intended as a joke has only come across as short-sighted by a brand who claim to be empowering for women.

Talking to the Sun, Sian said:

"At first, I didn't believe that a female fashion brand would put something like that on a product.

My daughter told me to look at the washing instructions in her hat because they are awful.

It's not something you would expect to see.

I know they're trying to be funny but it's a bit naff.

It just didn't sit right with me. I looked on the Missguided website and I noticed they were all for promoting girl power.

They seem like a brand that want to encourage young women to break stereotypes so I'm not sure why they would have something like this in their clothing."
