Knitagains:

Knitagains are plush dolls, animals and monsters made from recycled knit sweaters and t-shirts. Once they were knitwear.  Now they are “knit again”; hand-cut, assembled, embroidered, and stuffed with poly fiberfill. Most are weighted with pebbles or polybeads to give them a satisfying heft. Knitagains are Heidi’s most popular product. They come in a variety of sizes with larger pieces having a greater complexity and more detailed embellishment.   Characters include monsters, devils, rabbits, cats, fish, squid, birds and bugs.  KittyAllen Knitagains have been recognized by the Kentucky Arts Council as an official Kentucky Crafted product.
