I have been busy every night making fruits and veggies, and wanted to share some of my results!
My fruits and veggies are made of a mix of wool and alpaca on the outside, and stuffed with carded wool on the inside. No polyester or plastic here! So what is the benefit of wool? First of all wool is a natural fibre, made by a living creature instead of a in a factory. So wool warms to the touch, feels natural and soft, and retains a sense of its connection to living things! Polyester is a product of petroleum, is heavily processed therefore, and because it is a plastic it releases off-gases, burns quicker than natural products around a flame, and has a fake plasticy feel to it. In our house we are attempting to avoid plastic as much as is humanly possible in this age, especially concerning our kids. Every little bit counts, since the cumulated effect of so many plastics is greater than its parts.
