CPSC

The consumer product safety commission has set up guidelines for using fabric in children's items.

Flammability: If the fabric has pile (think fleece, velour, flannel, terry, something fuzzy or raised) then the fabric will need to be tested to ensure that it is a class 1 fabric. The following fabrics are exempt: acrylic, modaacrylic, nylon, olefin, polyester, and wool.

Lead: Some fabrics will need to be tested to be sure there is not excessive lead content. If it is made entirely of one of the following fibers it is exempt from lead testing: cotton, kapok, flax, linen, jute, ramie, hemp, kenaf, bamboo, coir, sisal, silk, wool (sheep), alpaca, llama, goat (mohair, cashmere), rabbit (angora), camel, horse, yak, vicuna, qiviut, guanaco, rayon, azlon, lyocell, acetate, triacetate, rubber, polyester, olefin, nylon, acrylic, modacrylic, aramid, and spandex.r 

Our certificates are update yearly to comply with CPSC guide lines. As a fabric retailer we are not required to do testing on our fabrics, but we offer this as a service to our customers. New certificates will be available mid June 2015 for all of our fabric.

NONE of our fabrics are treated to prevent flammability.
