    WARNING - some weighted blankets advertised as "fire retardant" are treated with a fireproofing spray.  This spray can be noxious and leaves an unpleasant sticky film on the blanket.   Not only that as soon as you wash or wipe the blanket the spray is washed off and becomes ineffective.Our blankets are made from a material which is inherently fire retardant and we have had the blankets independently tested. If you are unsure always ask the seller to email a copy of their test certificates to you.
