Handmade, Organic Knit Toys by Zubels
Super soft and sweet, Zubels makes organic knit toys that are handmade with love. We were sent the Zubels Frog Freddy Hand-Knit Doll. I appreciate the handmade organic fibers, as well as the low impact dyes of this toy. The price of $20, although seeming high for the doll itself, is not considering it is not made in China in a factory.
What are eco-friendly dyes?
Zubels uses only eco-friendly low impact dyes. Low impact dyes are eco-friendly for several reasons.
1) They don't contain toxic chemicals or mordants (used to help set the dye)
2) They have a high absorption rate (which leads to less water needed during dyeing)
3) They use low temperatures during dying (which saves energy)
4) They are more expensive (which means that they are reclaimed and not wasted)
The doll is not 100% natural, as it contains polyester fiber fill.
