Rory Rabbit

Last night when we opened the post box we had a very exciting delivery – another Rory. This time the Rory is an adorable rabbit, commissioned by us and knitted by our very talented and creative friend Kirsty. Kirsty and I had been planning the project before Rory was born as O and I wanted something unique and special to commemorate his birth. I gave a basic brief (colours etc.) and Kirsty did the rest. She chose a merino/ cashmere mix yarn from an Italian mill for the body and stuffed him with 100% cotton. His bow tie, paws and ears are made with a wool herringbone fabric that gives him a distinct English air. The final, magnificent touch is Rory’s name hand embroidered in Red (Rory means Red King is Gaelic) on the paw. A beautiful gift don’t you agree?

PS If you fancy your own commissioned piece, feel free to email the talented Kirsty at thearctichare@gmail.com
