It is important to me that I use materials in my work that I would be happy for my children play with, everything I use in toys conforms to British Safety Standards. (More about those HERE)
When you request a commission I will ask you what the item is for, this way I can make sure the materials used are appropriate.
If intended for a child, I will need to know if they are under 3 years of age so that the materials can be adjusted. I will give you the options when we discuss your commission.
For any commissions that will be outside or for decoration (such as a bauble) I will try to crochet around polystyrene shapes to achieve a degree of water resistance & ensure the item retains its shape.
All safety eyes conform to BS EN71. (THIS PDF explains more about toy safety)
The Toy stuffing I use is 100% Hi-Loft Polyester & conforms to BS5852, EN71. It’s clean, hygienic & machine washable.
