What Yarn is Safe for Mice?

Post by CinnamonPearl on Fri Jan 06, 2017 12:08 pm

I crochet, and I'm curious if there's any yarn safe for mice so I can make them things! I usually use acrylic yarn- is that safe? And if not, is there any out there I can use?

Acryclic yarn isn't safe for chewing or their nails. Craft stores (Michael's and Hobby Lobby, I know for sure have it) have fleece yarn that you can buy. It's around $5-6. There are also tutorials about how to make your own fleece yarn if you have any scraps.

I also use hemp threads/rope, which can be used with needles if you were interested. The mice are super fast to chew through and destroy it though, so it isn't the best for hanging things.

Oh yes! I've used color hemp to crochet a football hammock for a football themed cage. Laughing My boy wasn't a hammock fan but it looked pretty cool. Not as cozy as fleece though.
