This is a guaranteed vegan version of my knitted dissected lab rat! The yarn used is a fluffy acrylic, spandex and nylon blend, and the rat is stuffed with polyester fiber fill. Normally I needle-felt the organs, but because only animal fibers felt, the organs on this little guy are all hand knitted out of an acrylic / nylon yarn.
3 out of 4 vegan biologists agree: Knitted Lab Rat is the cuddliest biology project, ever! If you think so too, then this, my friend, is the art object for you.
Wow your scientist friends and colleagues with the coolness of this piece of knitted art. It comes pinned into an wooden 8 x 10 inch frame, but he is not glued down, so you can take him out and cuddle him if you wish. The backing for this rat is a beautiful dark brown cork.
