Gorgeous North Ronaldsay teddy bear Owain is very special – he is made from the wool of the most endangered of our British Sheep. For Owain I have used a mix of the natural North Ronaldsay wool colours to create a warm grey shade with brown tones.
Owain is hand made to order and the lead time is currently 3 weeks
In fact, for each North Ronaldsay wool teddy bear I always use the natural colour of each fleece which can range from white to dark grey and also browns and fawn. The fleece is excellent for hand spinning and has almost a double coat of softer under wool with coarser outer hairs, which add more depth of colour to the yarn.
Owain is lovely and soft but due to the slightly hairy nature of the wool he is not the best choice for babies or children but great if you need a bear for the man in your life!
He is a lovely little bear measuring just 9 inches in height.
Owain is very keen for you to know that he has glass eyes which can be dangerous for babies and children – he is not suitable for babies or children due to these small parts!
