Women from across Camden have dusted off their knitting needles and taken out their wool after a Facebook post inspired them to knit blankets for stillborn babies.

Sharon Taylor took to the Camden-Narellan Community Noticeboard to ask people to give their time to make blankets or donate wool to support the Angel Blanket Australia Organisation.

Ms Taylor was inundated with requests of people wanting to help.

“I didn’t think the response from the community would be so overwhelming but I’m just glad that we can come together to support such a great cause,” she said.

Ms Taylor hopes to continue knitting and, with the help of the community, provide many more homemade blankets for stillborn babies.
