These adorable little guys are in need of sweaters and the Penguin Foundation is asking for your help.
How stinking adorable are they? I die.
When these little guys get oil on their feathers it threatens their life. It’s difficult to swim and find food. They quickly become cold because the water penetrates their feathers.
Knitters unite! These penguins need sweaters. Not only do they keep them warm, but they also stop the birds from cleaning themselves and ingesting the oils.
The Penguin Foundation has included instructions and a pattern on their website. Anything that they don’t use, they sell in their gift shop.
I think a fish or a bow tie would be perfect for the front of these sweaters. Do you think they will send me a picture of a penguin wearing the sweater I made?
