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 from Gotland wool and I have hand dyed some of the wool for her cosy hat and scarf to keep her warm on her travels – really though, she is a home-comfort loving little bear who is looking for a safe garden in which to explore!!
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. I am always happy to embroider the eyes for you so please remember to select this option when ordering.
