Here in West Sussex our teddy bears are always keen to learn about the natural world inspired by their adventures out into the countryside – always looking out for hares, rabbits, foxes, owls, squirrels….
So we are trying to broaden our bears understanding of their surroundings by introducing them to species other than sheep and bees which make the honey for their sandwiches – We felt it was time to create some woolly critters!
Having made a good start with some very cute wild rabbits and a fox, we will be busy working on squirrels next!
The lovely pattern designs used for our “Wild and Woolly” animals are by Claire Garland and knitted here by us using pure wool, soft alpaca and luxurious mohair to create the natural tones for each animal’s fur.
