Gorgeous North Ronaldsay wool teddy bear Owain is very special – he is made from the wool of the most endangered of our British Sheep and just one of the two flocks of North Ronaldsay sheep left on the remote Island of Auskerry.
The isolated Orkney Island of Auskerry is home to some very special North Ronaldsay sheep who thrive on the Island eating their favourite food – seaweed! They wander along the pebble beaches to eat the weed washed up twice-a-day by the tide and in summer they also feast on the wild flowers and grasses that grow inland.
These North Ronaldsay sheep are one of only two flocks left in Orkney and they live a completely natural life in a beautiful place – resulting in the purest wool, free from chemicals, free from stress and completely sustainable.
Their unique fleeces are marked with a range of colours from caramel to black and creamy silver to dark grey. The yarn they produce is also amazingly soft and fine – perfect for making a special little bear like Owain!
Please note that Owain has glass eyes so he is not suitable for babies or children.
Owain measures 9inches in height and is hand made to order.
