The inspiration for our little knitted Pocket Bears came from the WW 1 Mascot bears made in 1915 and given as “love tokens” for soldiers to tuck in a pocket.
In the most horrific conditions, the pocket bears offered a small degree of comfort for those on the front line, many of whom, sadly, did not return to their families.
These bears were not knitted however, but sewn from mohair fabric and today are much sought after, fetching a high price.
Our little pocket bears below are all hand knitted from rare breed wool and they are dressed in cute outfits, each garment is knitted separately and is removable.
*Each of the bears below is available to order. The lead time is approx 3 weeks while we carefully hand knit your little bear especially for you.*
