While not a jackalope in the traditional sense, Cabbit is certainly a cryptid in the lagomorph/feline variety.
First documented in 1845 in the Outer Hebrides off the coast of Scotland, these creatures were part of the local fauna for thousands of years, dating back to the Neolithic Age. The Callanish Stones, a stone circle on Lewis Island, is their ancestral seat. It is thought this breed of cryptid was the product of a randy party attended by all the local critters. The jackalope queen of the island took a shine to the most handsome manx cat at the party. Lightning struck, literally, and the first cabbit was born shortly thereafter.
Cabbits have the best qualities of both rabbit and cat. They are playful, yet fierce. They hop about the island, pouncing on their prey of grasshoppers and crickets. They lounge in the sun under the heather growing on the hillsides. If you are lucky to see one, scritch it behind the ears and offer a snifter of scotch whiskey, and you'll have a friend for life, though they are quite derpy.
Our Cabbit base is a chain-style, mulberry silk yarn approximately 412m/100g. This fingering weight yarn is perfect for light shawls and scarves, socks, and other light clothing. This is also an excellent yarn for creating crocheted flowers and motifs.
All our yarns are hand-dyed in small batches. Come catch all the Cabbit colors in our Etsy Shop before they hop away!
