We signed up to be part of the badger sett, which is organised by Sam Draws Things to fundraise for the UK's badgers.
Vaccination rather then culling is clearly the best way to control bovine tuberculosis (bTB), not only for humane reasons but the cost of vaccinating a badger is only £200 compared to £1100 for trapping and killing a single badger! Despite those facts, the UK government has recently increased badger culling by 70%, which will result in a further 9500 badgers being needlessly killed.
We have designed a badger colourway called ‘Trufflehunter’ which will be available to pre-order from 8pm BST tonight on various bases, from which we will donate £5.00 per skein. We hope that this will not only help this brilliant initiative financially, but will also to draw attention to this ongoing travesty.
At the same time we will also be adding a few skeins of ‘Chaos Theory’ and a darker version of ‘Seaside Dreams’ called ‘Pacific Dreams’ to the site on our Fusion base.
That's it for now I think, so until next time.... :)
Thank you for your support
