      Sparkly knitted hedgehog

      Porridge and Rice hold mini petting zoo stalls at fairs throughout west London featuring the very popular pygmy hedgehogs. If you love hedgehogs, but don't want to commit to a live one, our cuddly knitted hedgehogs are a much lower-maintenance alternative!

      These sparkly hedgehogs are hand-knitted by a knitter who bores easily (and doesn't like to refer back to the pattern), so there will be some variation in the exact details. The yarn used is washable at low temperatures, but to keep your hedgehog in its best condition, we recommend only surface-wiping when necessary. The polyester filling is also washable. The critters measure approximately 18cm long by 10cm wide, and are child-safe (no use of buttons or wires).

      Colours available vary according to what is available - if you especially want a colour that isn't listed here, or would like a specific head/ears/feet colour, please email us and we will try to accommodate!

      P&P to UK addresses is included in the price.
