This yarn color is named in honor of Savannah, one of the resident Ambassadors living at the AWARE compound just outside Atlanta, GA. Savannah is a bobcat whose den was destroyed by a bulldozer. She was rescued, but the rescuer took her home and tried to make her a pet. She rapidly outgrew what he could handle, and he surrendered her to AWARE. She was already acclimated to and reliant on people, and couldn't be returned to the wild. Today she lives at AWARE permanently, educating visitors about the need to let wild animals stay wild.
10% of the sales of this yarn will go directly to AWARE to support their efforts.

AWARE delivers hundreds of ambassador programs at schools and festivals across Georgia, and offers free tours every Saturday and Sunday at 1 PM.
