Hand knitted from a mix of pure wool, alpaca and mohair to create his realistic colouring. I have made Diggery by using each of these three yarn types held together and knitted as one yarn. This is a great way to change colour giving subtle tones, in fact Diggery is made from twelve different colours.
For his dark colouring I have used black, dark ash grey and dark chocolate brown wool and alpaca, with bronze, gold and rust mohair in different areas of his body. His tummy is white, cream, beige, cinnamon and gold – there is so much detail here! Diggery’s ears are lined with two pink shades of mohair and his little black tail is edged with white.
Diggery is a lovely character with a longer face than my first two rabbits – very handsome, he is beautifully tactile too (the fluffy mohair making him so soft and cuddly it’s difficult to put him down!) He measures 12 inches in height and is a one of a kind little rabbit.
The very handsome Diggery is hand knitted from a pattern designed by the very talented Claire Garland – her designs are fabulous and you can find more here www.etsy.com/uk/shop/DotpebblesKnits
