The life-size sculptures of ice age mammals at Whitehorse’s Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre are now wearing colorful knits. The woolly mammoth is sporting a stylish sweater, while the beaver rocks some sweet pajamas, all thanks to Yarn Bomb Yukon.
“The whole process, including the mammoth and the beaver, took about three hours,” said Jessica Vellenga of Yarn Bomb Yukon. “We had to use some ladders and draped it and sort of form-fit it around with spare pieces . . . We took darning needles and lots of yarn and stitched it all into one big piece.”
