Welcome to a special place, devoted to some gorgeous knitted guinea pigs. Famously known as the 'Cabbage Patch Pigs', lovingly hand knitted by Carol Houghton in Scotland. Originally, Carol knitted these delightful guinea pigs to help raise funds for Squeaky Pig Rescue, which sadly closed down last year. I'm now very happy to tell you that the piggies are now available on-line at Thistle Cavies Rescue in Scotland.

There are many knitted piggies available, each piggy comes with a delightful poem. Special additions are also available, including Christmas piggies, Easter piggies, and even a Bride and Groom. Baby piggies, known as piglets, are also available, complete with a nappy and their very own dummy. By sending in a photograph of your guinea pig to Thistle Cavies Rescue , you can also have your very own personalised knitted guinea pig. Baby piggies are 6.99 and adult piggies are 7.99. They really do make wonderful, unique gifts for guinea pig lovers. Not only will you own a famous cabbage patch pig, all proceeds go directly to Thistle Cavies Rescue so you will also be helping rescued guinea pigs, how rewarding is that!

Here are just a few of the cabbage patch piggies available. Starting with one of the very first original cabbage patch pigs. This adult piggy is called Rainbow piggy, she comes complete with her own special pocket envelope which contains a beautiful poem. To give you an idea about her size, Jasmine had her photo taken with Rainbow.
