Volunteers give bushfire-affected animals new knitted homes

So sweet!

Animals orphaned and injured in bushfires have been given new homes thanks to a group of Queensland knitting enthusiasts.

Volunteers with Queensland Spinners Weavers and Fibre Artists wanted to do their bit as the bushfire crisis hit the country in recent months.

On Wednesday, the group was able to witness the fruits of their labour when possums and glider joeys were homed in the pouches, which were donated to the RSPCA.

“It’s just beautiful to see them sitting in their pouches,” spokeswoman Michelle Hanley said.

“Once they jump in there, they just snuggle in face-first to get into the coziness at the bottom of the pouch.

“And they pop their heads up again and have a peek-a-boo.”
