Etsy feature - Recycled Ideas and her felted Ornamonkeys

What exactly is an OrnaMonkey?

Well, they're monkey ornaments made from felt to resemble real species of monkeys. One monkey is released each month. Each species is chosen for its charismatic face, interesting social habits or other oddities which make the species unique among primates. Each monkey is collectible and comes with a dated bio-blurb about the species and its conservation status. The felt is eco-spun felt that is 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. I especially love the fact that her felt is completely recycled!

She currently runs a Monkey of the Month Club which gives people a different OrnaMonkey each month for a year. I'm going to take a bit from Holly, but here are the details on how to score a year's worth of monkey's for yourself!

Membership spaces become available in November and are offered at a discount. Each member who signs up before December 31 will receive twelve 2009 OrnaMonkeys for only $99 plus S&H ($168 if purchased individually), a savings of more than 40%. Species to be included are: lemurs, macaques, marmosets, langurs, tamarins, titi monkeys and more. The shipping and handling fee covers the cost of shipping all 12 monkeys ($2 per monkey).

Well, these cute little felted creatures you can find in an Etsy shop run by Holly. She happens to spend her days conducting interdisciplinary research on primate behavior. And when she isn't busy doing that, she's creating other items that carry this love for primates over into the crafting world. Take a look at her cute shop!
