Imagine it’s a summer evening. It’s nearly dark, but you can still see shapes and shadows. An intelligible creature speeds up in the skies, and there’s a barely audible high-pitched screech that accompanies it. Someone tells you that it’s a bat, and if you’re unlucky enough to be wearing white and have long hair, they warn you to go inside, or else a flying vampire mouse will definitely come at you just to tangle in your locks and have a taste of your blood. However, you know better than…
Bats. They get a bad rap, don’t they? They’ll fly in my hair! They’ll suck my blood! They have rabies! While there may be the slightest grain of truth in the blood-feeding and rabies myths (only 3 species of bat feed on blood, while less than 1% of bats carry the rabies virus), these adorable animals are certainly not interested in flying near your hair and would much rather eat a piece of yummy fruit or some insects.
My story began 3 years ago when I, a mother of two, saw wonderful toys made from an unknown material, which, as I later found out, was wool. I got really interested in this technique and decided to try making a toy myself. My first toy wasn’t nearly as pretty, it was rather funny, but I enjoyed the process so much that I kept trying.
