Baby Blue Whale
Blue whales can grow to over 33 metres (around 100ft) in length, which is over twice as long as a t-rex dinosaur – and makes them the largest animal species on Earth! The calf of a blue whale is around 7 metres in length, around the same as an adult African elephant! They are one of nature's most magnificent and graceful beings. Lounder, larger, longer and heavier than any other creature and with the biggest brain! This handknitted Baby Blue Whale (though only measures about 11 inches long) is perfect for hugging and for carrying around with you on your travels!
Knitting Expedition was begun as a way to provide supplementary income for the women of Ifugao to maintain the rice terraces. Instead of leaving the region to find better paying jobs, the income from the sales of the products allows them to stay and tend to the rice terraces that are not only an awe-inspiring legacy of their town but also of the Philippines and which has provided sustenance for generations of their families. The brand Knitting Expedition also signifies the journey of founders, Candy and Aueeie, as knitters and the distance that the hand-knit products have to travel to make it to your homes.
