Darling Donkey

The thing I really love about donkeys is their VERY LARGE EARS. Darling De la Creme Donkey is an excellent listener for little ones. And he’s warm and comforting being stuffed with pure wool.

Natural hand knit toys

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.
