If you love knitting, or are looking for a new hobby this winter, why not knit a blanket for your cat, dog or even SPCA.

As the temperature drops, it is important to think about how the change in weather affects your pet. Knitting your pet a new woolly blanket for their bed will not only give you some time to focus on your wellbeing, but also will keep your little one warm and comfortable through the chilly nights. Watch our latest video below to find out why a wool pet blanket is good for your pet.

Just as it is for humans, wool is great for pets. Not only does it not hold on to that wet dog smell, but it is great for pets with skin allergies or arthritis. It is also great for that new puppy who just doesn’t want to sleep through the night. Touch Yarns has created a great knitting pattern for a pet blanket for us to share with you. This will be a great project for you – and, as you can see in the video, pets love it. Please note that, if you are knitting this for a dog, you will need to leave the popcorn stitches out (especially if your pet thinks blankets are a great post-dinner treat).
