Lay all the 2 inch pieces next to each other, then gather them up and tie the 4 inch piece securely around the center. Now tie your long piece of string, ribbon or wool to the wool toy.

  • Safety

    – With any toy you need to watch what your pet does with it. If they are able to put a hole in it or break off pieces, you need to fix it or throw it away.
