Calling all knitters: Saving penguins one sweater at a time

  • Print

Penguins are the last bird one would think need cold weather gear, but the New Zealand yarn store Skeinz is putting out the call to philanthropic knitters the world over to lend a needle to save waterfowl affected by the 2011 New Zealand oil spill.

Not only do the sweaters keep birds warm after a thorough cleaning, they prevent them from preening any poison from their feathers.

Full story at Skeinz via Laughing Squid.
