Turtle Knits by Shirley

Did you know that bamboo is one of the most sustainable materials out there? It doesn’t need fertilizers to keep it growing, and it’s one of the fastest growing grasses out there! Yes, it’s a grass!!! Apparently it has been used as far back as the 3rd century BC! How does this relate to Funchkins? Well we now have newly listed items made from a combination of rayon from bamboo and wool fibres.!

The seller is called Turtle Knits by Shirley and they are a mother and daughter duo from a small town on East coast of South Africa. All the items are handmade and professionally put together, and they all come with an extra dose of love and well wishes from these two crafts people.

Items available include little beanies, booties and jackets all made from this super soft yarn in sizes to fit premies to 12mth olds.

A range of Turtle Knits  knitwear will be available January 2011 at www.funchkins.com
