Spring Hedgehog

Bulb leaves shooting out of frosted earth, absurdly bright yellow crocuses, warm sunlight on our faces. Spring is here. Spring Hedgehog is a special custom order.

Soft for softies

December 16, 2009

Super-pink, ultra-soft Pink Hedgehog has gone to her forever home with a beautiful granny in the US. She was not feeling so great so her daughter had me send her Pink Hedgehog who is now getting lots of cuddles. I am really moved by this since it hadn’t occurred to me how comforting knit toys like super-soft, super-pink Pinky here would be for the more frail amongst us.

I have a little blush on today because the beautiful people at Coriandr.com have honored LullabyLily as a Featured Seller. Have a peep at the interview with me.

Gosh, mumble mumble. Thank you Coriandr.com.

Natural hand knit toys

Hand made hedgehog, rear view!

Don’t get me wrong, I am not against polyester in any way and definitely not against polyester filling; it has a lot of benefits not least affordability. But, hello, there is just no comparison (em, let’s leave the easy laundry factor to one side for a minute!) with pure wool as a filling for natural hand knit toys.

I only use pure wool stuffing like Merino roving for all LullabyLily knit darlings. It sculpts beautifully, has a warmth to it, it is cosy and dense but squishy too. It was once a living fibre. It is comforting. And at LullabyLily we like comforting.
