What happens when a talented designer enlists the assistance of a diverse collective of crochet lovers to create handmade dolls? Shmuddle Buddies, of course. DUH! Jessica Butterick (who does most of the work herself) and her team of pros and enthusiasts have created a lovely, eco-fiendly collection of dolls that are as adorable as they are sensible. Using only Fair Trade, organic and non-GMO cotton, Shmuddle Buddies (Or shmushy cuddle, which rhymes with puddle) may just become your child’s new best friend.
Another great thing about Shmuddle Buddies is that the organic wool they are made from is naturally dust-mite repellent and hypoallergenic. If you have a kid who, like me, is allergic to air, this might be the perfect companion. Shmuddle Buddies uses recycled fiberfill made from 100% post-consumer plastic bottles. If you prefer organic wool, you can upgrade for $20. You can find out more here.
If you have young children and you worry about the button eyes, you can use code YARNEYES when you check out and Jessica will embroider the eyes on any Shmuddle Buddy for no additional charge.
