The universe is so vast and huge, that I often stare into the stars wondering if there’s a pod of multicoloured whales out there in the cosmos circling a star, just like in my Whales of the Universe mobile.

Essential Information
The mobile is made up of seven Small Whales crocheted using amigurumi techniques that are attached to the mobile ring with a thread of yarn.

The Large Whale is about double the size of the Small Whale and is perfect for putting in the cot with the baby as they look up at the mobile.

The small whales can also be made up individually or as a set for a child to play with.
