A bit of clever recycling here: Wild Things are knit out of wool recycled from old sweaters. Their sweet faces and soft bodies are great for little kids to snuggle up with, and we love the idea of sweater wool being reused. These woolly friends are handknit by a New England handicapped artist collective. posted originally from: AT:Nursery Wild Things Recycled Sweater Stuffed Animals are $26.00, and because of the nature of the materials used, there will be color variations. We had never thought of unraveling an old sweater for the knitting wool before, but this is inspiring us to take a second look at our winter clothing before we just donate it to a charity shop.
