Hand Spun Wool - Hand Knitted Teddy Bears

Working from home in a small village in West Sussex, I knitted my first bear about 19 years ago now. Followed by a few bears for friends and family but it was my Dad who really encouraged me. I couldn’t have started the business without his support, he really believed in what I was doing. He has sadly since passed on but The Knitted Bear Company lives on in his memory, creating small numbers of the hand knitted bears he found so appealing and with the wish that they should bring so much pleasure to others.

The wool used for each little bear is from rare breeds of sheep. Sadly many of these sheep breeds are now disappearing and some are close to extinction. So each little bear is really quite special.

New crochet sheep and bears!

The bears depend on word of mouth to find new homes so please let your friends and family know about them.
