Our Faux Taxidermy is back!!! All the way from the United Kingdom! This is a fun project for anybody who knows the basics of knitting. The animals can be knitted on straight needles and sewn together using mattress stitch, so there's no working in the round. The design gives the appearance of intarsia color work, but there's no color changing in the middle of the row making it a really fun project to knit.

Choose from a whimsical fox, a traditional deer (put a red nose on her for the Holidays), a highland cow, or a mythical unicorn! We're sure you know someone who will be delighted! 

The Highland Cow could be mistaken for a University of Texas mascot, we could even ask our friend Matthew McConaughey if it meets with approval.

Return Policy

To protect you from odd dye lots, odors, or allergens, yarn may not be returned. We want to be sure that each skein you get has come direct from the dyer, to the shop to you. Full priced items other than yarn may be exchanged for shop credit if Fuzzy Goat receives the item within 2 weeks of when you received the item. 

To be eligible for an exchange, there must be proof of purchase, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging and in re-saleable condition when Fuzzy Goat receives it. Shop credit will be for the items purchased and not inclusive of shipping. We recommend insuring your package as we cannot credit returns for items that do not arrive.

If you are requesting to cancel an order, within two hours of your order and we have not wound your yarn and it has not yet reached our Fulfillment Maven, we will issue you shop credit for your whole order. (We incur quite a few non-refundable fees from our merchant services as soon as your order is placed)

Thanks for your understanding.
