This is a small knit amigurumi babirusa, hand-knit to order.
Babirusas are members of the pig family, native to the forests of Sulawesi and nearby Indonesian islands. The canine teeth of male babirusas grow upwards and, in some types of babirusas, curl dramatically over the animals' faces.
The sizes of my knit babirusas vary: the babirusas are about 5" (13 cm) long and stand about 3" (7.5 cm) tall. If you would like a babirusa to be a minimum or maximum size, let me know.
My babirusas are made from wool blend yarn and stuffed with polyester fiberfill. The tusks are made using pipe cleaners with yarn wound tightly around them. A babirusa with tusks is NOT appropriate for a small child. However, I can make a tuskless female babirusa that has no dangerous parts.
The babirusas come from a smoke-free home. I have cats, and although I will do my best to ensure that any order is free of pet hair, please let me know before ordering if you have severe cat allergies.
Because this item is made-to-order, please allow up to three weeks for the babirusa to be finished. If you need a babirusa sooner than that, let me know - I may be able to send one out right away if I have a surplus.
