These heirloom quality toys make a special gift for newborn babies, they look
adorable on the nursery shelf and they will sure to be treasured once bub is old
enough to give these soft knitted toys some loving cuddles.

The echidna knitted toys come in 2 sizes:
Small: 19cm long
Medium: 28 cm long


We have a range of knitted animals available: zebra, cow, echidna, elephant,
koala and sheep.

These knitted animal toys are hand crafted by the artisan group, Kenana Knitters
based in Kenya. Local Kenyan, Patricia Nightingale, founded the group in 1998.
Patricia wanted to assist local ladies who were lacking a market for their
homespun wool. Over time with clever designs, she and the knitters transformed
the yarn into unique creations. With a vision to further impact the community,
Kenana Knitters taught women in the area to knit beautiful, organic cotton
products using local, sustainable resources. By providing a safe, family-friendly
working environment, Kenana Knitters empowers women, offering them a
chance to work and take charge of their lives, with pride and dignity.
