It is a legal requirement for all makers of children's toys and products to conform to safety requirements, and carry a CE mark. A large part of this is to ensure that the materials you are using meet OEKO-TEX and European Standard EN71-3.
Please note - yarns simply meet the EN71-3 and OEKO-TEX standards, it's the products that you make that require the CE mark - you need to complete the rest of the process.
