Originally from the Island of Gotland, off the coast of Sweden, this little Gotland wool teddy bear, named Elwin, has traveled a long way and is spreading the word about the hardy Gotland sheep which are becoming increasingly popular here in the UK.
Elwin is hand knitted (here by me, not really in Sweden) from pure Gotland wool which is very soft and fine, very similar in feel to mohair. She has the cutest expression and wears a hand dyed Gotland wool hat and scarf to keep her warm on her travels (these are both removable) – really though, she is a home-comfort loving little bear who is looking for a new home!!
Little Elwin 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 Elwin is not really suitable for babies or Children.
