FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO YOU MAKE OTHER ANIMALS?
Right now the animals previously posted on my Instagram page (@hookandbadger) are the only ones I currently make. Although I do have plans to expand my range.
Let me know if you have any requests and I'll add them to my list!
CAN YOU MAKE A BESPOKE HEAD OF MY PET?
This is something I wish I could offer, but unfortunately its just not feasible. Simply put, it would take too much time to work out a pattern that would achieve a likeness I'd be happy to sell to you.
If however you would like a customised version of an animal I already make, please feel free to get in touch to discuss options and feasibility
IS GIFT WRAPPING AN OPTION?
At present I do not offer this service, however this is something I wish to add as an optional extra in the near future!
WHY DO YOU NOT SUPPLY WALL FIXINGS?
I did consider supplying these, however different wall fixings are required (nails, screws, wall plugs, picture hooks, etc) depending on what type of material you are wishing to hang your animal head from.
I am not in a position to advise, so unfortunately this is the customers responsibility. However, the brass sawtooth picture hook attached to the back of each head is designed to be compatible with most wall fixings.
HOW ECO-FRIENDLY ARE YOUR PRODUCTS?
This is something I am definitely conscious of, which is why all of my packaging is paper based. The brass plates and screws attached to the back of each head are also recyclable. The yarn I use is always 100% natural fiber, either cotton, bamboo, or wool. (On rare occasions where I am using up yarn from my stash this may not apply, but will be clearly stated on the product page and swing tag)
Currently each head is backed with birch plywood, this will soon be changing to a sustainable solid wood alternative! At present I use plastic safety eyes, however I am looking at changing this to a glass eye with metal washer. Each head is filled with stuffing made from recycled plastic bottles, although I am researching natural stuffing alternatives.
DO YOU SELL CROCHET PATTERNS OF YOUR ANIMAL HEADS?
The short answer to this is no, I do not. It may however be something I consider doing in the future if I no longer wish to make them myself.
In the meantime please be kind and don't try to make copies of my work!
