I've been looking for EN71-3 compliant fabric that meet EU and UK toy chemical safety standards to use in my display plushes. Here are some sources I found:
Plush Addict Microfleece
Plush Addict Polar Fleece
Plush Addict Cuddlesoft
FabricUK Printed Animal Fur
FabricUK Rainbow Fur
Fred Aldous Short Pile Fur
Fred Aldous Long Pile Fur
Fred Aldous Bobbly Cream Fur
Textile Express Fleece - Type in search box: EN71
As you know, I have been searching for plush making supplies that comply with EN71-3 chemical migration standards to use in my display plushes. One item I had trouble getting my hands on was certified sewing thread. After a month of correspondence with various companies, I found two sources.
- Gutermann sew-all polyester thread
- Coats 100% polyamide transparent sewing thread
I asked whether I could post their statements and certificates here to make it freely available for makers, but the companies informed me that others would have to contact them directly. Feel free to contact me for email addresses. Please ensure you are satisfied before using these sewing threads for your makes.
Disclaimer: I do not speak on behalf of these companies. You will have to correspond with the companies directly and request the relevant information for your technical file. I am only trying to point other makers in the right direction to make it easier for the community.
