While these may not be the fastest hedgehogs, we'd argue that they are the cutest. Almost cuddly. The average real-life hedgehog has 5000 spines. While not poisonous or barbed, they are still not very comfortable. This is why we decided to go with our usual cotton, polyester, spandex blend for our new Hedgehog Heaven knee high socks. These cute socks are as cozy as hedgehogs are spiny!
