Knits for Nature jumpers - pattern download

To continue raising vital funds for conservation, we love to receive themed jumpers for sale on plush penguin toys. These raise funds that go directly to penguin and wildlife rehabilitation and research, but are not worn on live penguins.

The Penguin Foundation is looking forward to receiving your hand knitted little penguin jumpers/sweaters.

Our sincere thanks to all knitters (past and future) for your incredible support, both in time and the cost involved with materials and postage.


Please send or deliver your little penguin jumpers to the following address

(not to the PO Box from previous publications).

Penguin Foundation: Shop 4, 154/156 Thompson Ave, Cowes VIC 3922.

We are seeking jumpers to raise funds that go directly to penguin and wildlife rehabilitation and research, but are not worn on actual penguins. Christmas colours are popular, as are football-themed jumpers and also countries of the world flag colours. Any style that is a bit eye catching, stripey or themed would be wonderful as they are very attractive souvenirs for people visiting in-store and they raise funds for the not-for-profit Penguin Foundation. As the jumpers are not for use on animals, the strict need for pure wool is gone and requirements for no buttons and embellishments is no more and we invite you to have some fun! Buttons, bow ties and bling are all encouraged! Little hats and scarves are very welcome too.

Please email any queries to and we are looking forward to seeing what the creative knitting community comes up with!

Are you wanting to purchase a plush penguin toy in a jumper?

Unfortunately, our online store is temporarily closed and undergoing redevelopment. So, at the moment the only way you can purchase plush penguins in jumpers is in store at the Penguin Parade or Nobbies Visitor Centre, Phillip Island, Victoria.

The online store will be back up and running later in the year. If you would like to follow the Penguin Foundation Facebook page, we will post an update when the store is back online.

Thank you for your support!
