Kerry Lord has created a wonderful zoo of crocheted animals that are available in 4 sizes.  Simply choose your yarn thickness to make a elephant from 4.75" to 13" tall!  Bridget the Elephant is a favorite from the menagerie with her big, floppy ears, and her long trunk.  Yarn Loop has carefully selected yarns for these adorable creatures to create heirloom toys that last for generations. 

While the original menagerie was created on Alpaca yarn, all of the kits available directly from the maker are 100% Wool.  The wool (superwash excluded) will felt over time, creating a very dense exterior whereas the alpaca will get a bit drapey.  However, rest assured that both fibers are durable and will not easily be destroyed. 

Please choose between Standard Kit (this page) or Book Gift Set (click to go to page).  Standard Kit includes pattern (pdf & bound copy), selected yarn and the following accessories: 2 yds black embroidery floss for eyes, & polyfill stuffing.  Please select which weight of yarn you prefer based upon the finished size you would like:
