I am currently designing a toy for children which uses loop nylon – a smooth, soft Velcro. The toy forms part of a children’s duvet cover and I am trying to determine the washing restrictions of the material, or find a suitable supplier which would know.
I have been using loop nylon supplied from an exhibition stand supplier to create prototypes. Exhibition stands aren’t, of course, meant to be washed and so the material only has a non-durable flame retardant on it, which will wash out. This material does get used on toys but I have been struggling to track down a supplier for this purpose. Do you know the washing limitations of such a material? or Do you know of a supplier of loop nylon for plush toys?
Any help or advice you could give would be much appreciated.
Many Thanks, Andrew
