SHIPPING UPDATE: Due to a backlog of orders, new orders placed today will likely not arrive in time for the holidays. New orders can be expected in January (or possibly early February). I have finally quit my day job so that I can focus on knitting and shipping all day, every day! But It will take some time to get caught up. Thanks for your understanding!

3 out of 4 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. The rat is hand knit from a kid mohair and silk blend, and his little innards are needle-felted by hand out of 100% wool. He comes pinned into his actual dissection tray, but he is not glued down, so you can take him out and cuddle him if you wish.
