Hand knitted, cream tortoise with a cream and purple striped shell. Roughly 17 cm from nose to tail.
This is not a toy. While every care has been taken in the making of these items, they are not certified for use as toys and should be considered ornamental. The yarns used were new and, as far as I am aware, synthetic.
These hand crafted items were made by my late Mum, to be sold at the various events she and Dad attended to raise awareness, and fund, for the British Lung Foundation. Mum had emphysema for the last 11 years of her life, and despite her illness, devoted time and energy to raising awareness and speaking out for others with lung conditions.
After her death, we found a case filled with knitted and crochet items, and Dad and I have agreed to offer them for sale here, with all proceeds going to the British Lung Foundation, as she intended.
