I do knit, and crochet. Today I came across some baby hats I made for donating to hospitals, and it made me wonder if sleeping bags, cozy cups knit are safe for guineas? If they bite and chew, can the fibers hurt them? I plan on making felt ones, but was wondering about yarns / fiber saftey.
 
No, they're not safe. They ravel, and pigs can ingest the threads and wind up with intestinal blockages.
