Isn’t our Woolly Felted Hedgehog absolutely adorable ?!
This lovely Woolly Felted Hedgehog has been handcrafted in Nepal by workers paid a fair wage.
All our woolly felted animals are made from 100% sheep’s wool – a completely natural and sustainable material. All the dyes used are sustainable too!
Each and every hedgehog is a little bit unique – this is because they’re totally handmade.
Why the Woolly Felted Hedgehog? What’s so good about hedgehogs?
Here at Chimney Sheep we think hedgehogs are pretty awesome – they do a lot of good for the environment – and they’re a sign that you have a healthy local biodiversity.
If you’ve got a large amount of hedgehogs in your local area, it’s a sign that your local ecosystem is healthy – hedgehogs feed off invertebrates and plants – so if the hedgehog population is thriving it must mean that there’s a lot of food to go around! So lots of yummy bugs and insects!
If you don’t have many hedgehogs – it might be a sign your local biodiversity is low . We reccommend planting native plants and trees to help rectify this. Check out our seed bombs for just one idea on how to help!
Hedgehogs are generally pretty cool animals anyway – they help keep the local bug population under control, as well as eating slugs and snails, that may have otherwise eaten your garden.
Here’s some fun facts about hedgehogs:
Hedgehogs are lactose intolerant – so don’t give them milk!
They make little snuffling noises – just like mini hogs!
Hedgehogs have approximately 5000 spines! This helps protect them against predators.
Hedgehogs are very common in Europe – and they’re a popular pet in the USA!
Hedgehogs are immune to adder venom ! This comes in handy because they can eat small snakes as well as bugs.
