Felted Slow Loris by FamiliarOddlings Felted Slow Loris by FamiliarOddlings


Needle felted wool over pipe cleaner with plastic eyes. From end to end, it is about 5 inches long.

Did you guys know the slow loris is toxic? That it's a primate? That is has a tooth-comb? That it's adorable?! :D

Unfortunately, the slow loris is also endangered.



This little one will go up in my etsy shop [link] on September 16th, the start of Slow Loris Awareness Week. It will be $150 USD, $50 of which will go to The Little Fireface Project to help the loris.

Want to learn more about the slow loris? Visit Dr Anna Nekarisí Little Fireface Project: [link]

Keep an eye open for Slow Loris Awareness Week!

I have been trying to find a sweet slow loris stuffed animal for my daughter. She is turning sweet 16 and this is the one thing she wants. Any idea if this item is still available

Aw, this is super adorable! That pose really adds to his cuteness as well!
I am actually working on a slow loris plush at the moment, hopefully I will have it done and posted up soon :) Kind of a weird coincidence that it is Slow Loris awareness week coming up. I never knew!

Have you seen the video of the slow loris being tickled? If not, you need to. Right now. Here it is :)

Also, this little guy is SO cute! I'm sure you won't have a problem getting it sold :D

Thank you! I'm so happy people like it and it's going to be helping the loris cause. :)

Sadly, that video is of an illegal pet and the Little Fireface Project is informing everyone not to watch those types of videos. See this video instead and visit www.nocturama.org [link]

@Sorenli and @Shiroaniko. The reason Davina made this little baby is for our Little Fireface Project. That video is of an illegal pet. It looks cute in those 30 seconds, but 100s died for that loris to be a pet in horrific conditions. See this video instead and visit www.nocturama.org - the cause this baby is supporting. [link]

Some cultures in Borneo believed that when they died, they got their own personal slow loris in the afterlife. What an utterly cool idea.
