Group is asking knitters to make sweaters for penguins

A company in New Zealand wants people to knit wool penguin sweaters like the ones you see here.

The "penguin jumpers" will be shipped to workers rescuing birds from an oil spill off the county's coast.

The sweaters keep the penguins warm until they are healthy enough to be scrubbed clean. They also prevent the birds from preening or cleaning their feathers and ingesting the toxic oil.

The company lists all the specifications and instructions for the penguin jumpers on their website.
