Thread Follower created their kits with as small a footprint as possible. They use local and recycled materials wherever they can. Their super soft, 100% wool stuffing is produced by Northeastern U.S. farms and their felt is manufactured in Massachusetts. They use recycled boxes, eco papers, and vegetable-based inks.
