In 2008, Jan Brown, a 52-year-old mother in Seaburn, U.K., began knitting sweaters. Jan wasn’t doing it just to keep herself busy. Instead, she was making the adorable pieces of clothing for abandoned greyhounds and whippets. Ms. Brown began hand-knitting dog coats to raise money and awareness for a greyhound rescue. Fortunately her business has taken off and she is helping dogs all over the globe.
She began her work in 2008, in 2012 she was inundated with orders for coats, hats, and neck warmers for all kinds of dogs. She has since quit her day job to keep knitting.
The Greyhound Rescue Northeast shelter in Tyne & Wear have benefited from her charitable work. But now her business, Knitted With Love, is helping shelters across the U.K.
She has already stopped taking orders for Christmas 2015! But you can still order for later.
These dog’s sweaters keep your dogs fashionable during the winter, but all of the profits go towards a good cause.
These are the most adorable sweaters on the market!
Greyhounds have a difficult time generating and retaining enough body heat on their own so the cute jumpers serve a great purpose!
