Is a rayon acetate blend blanket safe for babies?

Both acetate and rayon are made from natural materials mixed with chemicals. I have no reason to believe that any of the chemicals remain in the material at the end of processing, nor have I heard of any reports that it could be dangerous for babies to chew on such a blanket. These materials are not on my list of known top toxics.
