Clothing made from animals is so 10 years ago. These days, clothing made for animals is all the rage.
On Monday, local news station ABC13 News Reported on a retirement Home in Milton, Mass, that started a specialty Knitting club. The home teamed up with a local nonprofit to make sweaters for chickens during New England’s harsh winter. The project allows yarn-savvy retirees to put their skills to use and help the birds stay warm in the cold weather.
Of course, not everyone was sold on the idea at first. It does sound a little cuckoo. “When they said they were gonna make these sweaters for the chickens, I thought it was the most foolish thing I had ever heard in my life, and everybody that I told laughed at me,” Libby Kaplan told ABC13 News. “They couldn’t believe it, but we made the sweaters for the chickens, and I’m glad that we did.”
