These are brilliant! I love to see creative cat toys made from re-purposed materials and this is one of the best uses of recycled sweaters yet — Sweater Balls! Just like Marvelous Melissa’s Three Blind Mice, the Sweater Balls from Cerise G help divert old wool sweaters from the landfill by using their soft fabric to make cat toys. Felting the sweaters gives them added durability. Each Sweater Ball is stuffed with polyfill to make a great lightweight toy, perfect for tossing and pouncing.
I love the color and pattern combinations and the cats really seem to enjoy the Sweater Balls, too. Available from Cerise G’s Etsy Shop for just $5.95. I predict she will have to make some more soon. Time to hit the thrift stores in search of more wool sweaters!
