I first discovered Jenny’s KnitCo on Etsy’s Chunky Knitted Cat Bed and fell instantly in love – one of those things where I was like, “I HAVE GOT TO HAVE THAT!” In other words, it was too gorgeous not to share with readers around the world.
This chunky cat bed is made of 100% organic merino wool and comes in lots of different colors – I have posted the color choices below – and comes in a standard diameter of 18 inches. If you are not familiar with merino wool, it is very soft and cats tend to like wool.
As many of you know, for our reviews I do an arrival video (embedded below) to show how the bed comes and then we spend 4-6 weeks reviewing the product. During the course of those 4-6 weeks, many readers will ask questions about the product. Two of the questions I got, I have posted below, as I think they will help all interested in ordering this bed.
Washing This Bed
A reader asked about washing this bed, so I asked Jenny about it and she said, “I usually suggest dry cleaning only, because it’s organic merino wool. But I did wash my beds in a bag meant for delicate clothes in the washing machine with delicate mode for wool and they look good but they did loose some softness (machine will cause the wool to felt) or if you put wrong mode it’s can destroy wool.”
Sizes of This Cat Bed
Another reader asked, “I really like the looks of the chunky, knitted cat bed, you featured, from Etsy. Which size bed did you have? I see they come in different sizes.” Jenny replied, “This bed comes in one size 18 inches, but I can custom make any size.” Overall, I think this bed is a work of art – it is so aesthetically beautiful, I can’t handle it.
I feel proud to have it in my home! Charlie has not laid in it that I have seen, but Chiggy laid it in daily when the weather was nicer and the windows were open. Now that the weather has changed, he has changed sleeping positions, so I might need to switch up the placement of the bed again. He immediately took to it – and that’s no surprise given his love for wool.
Chiggy is trying to hide from me in the shot below – but I did a bird’s eye view in the arrival video with Charlie that will give you a better idea of how a large breed cat will fit in the bed.
