Remember those loveable furry friends who were on TV in the 1970s clearing up Wimbledon Common?

Well, they’re back to introduce a whole new generation to sustainability, a love of nature and the importance of community.

Prima has teamed up with The Wombles to create this fabulous Orinoco knit. He makes a fabulous present for a friend, or why not make him just for you!
