Dexter loves the snow and enjoys nothing better than a long hike in the wonderful Winter weather. He always takes his faithful stick along, as, being a small bear, it is very important to test the depth of the snow!
To produce the marled colouring for Dexter I have spun some light and dark Jacob wool and then plied, or spun, the two separately coloured yarns together, giving a lovely two toned effect. The yarn is a little thicker than my usual hand spun yarn which makes Dexter a little more sturdy which is ideal in helping him to withstand the snowy conditions he loves to go out in!
Little Dexter is hand made to order.
All of the bears are very keen for you to know that they have glass eyes. Although very beautiful and hand made, these eyes can be dangerous for babies and small children. Also being hand knitted in pure wool, the bears really don’t like to be washed in a washing machine, therefore Dexter is not really suitable for babies and young children.
