My little hand knitted teddy bears are brought to life using hand spun wool from rare breed sheep sourced within the UK. Sadly many of these sheep breeds are now disappearing and some are close to extinction – so each little bear is really quite special.
I hand spin my own wool to make each bear on a traditional spinning wheel and always hand spin straight from the raw fleece, reflecting the many different natural colours and distinctive wool types – from the hardy, water-repellant near-black Hebridean to the soft, distinctively coloured Jacob.
Great attention to detail goes into creating each bear I make, using four double pointed needles to hand knit each unique little character. I hope you can choose a bear to capture your heart, knowing he (or she) has been entirely hand made, from selecting the rare breed sheep fleece, to hand spinning the wool and then hand knitting that special little bear to share your life.
