Eco-Friendly Knitting

I've been branching out with my knitting, and I'm making a serious effort to use upcycled or organic yarn for my knitting projects.

This week, I'm going to feature some of the eco-friendly items for sale in my handmade shop at Etsy.

This is a handknit caterpillar, who is made with organic cotton yarn with natural colors. No dyes, pesticides, herbicides or other agri-chemicals were used to grow or color the yarn.

In addition, he has been stuffed with all new fiberfill made from bamboo, which is a sustainable resource. Bamboo fiberfill is naturally antibacterial. It makes a soft, yet firmly stuffed critter.
