Samuel, a very thoughtful little teddy bear is hand knitted from the wool of the Jacob sheep. The wool is all hand spun and using a mix of the natural colours of the fleece, making a lovely warm grey. I have given him an embroidered dark wool nose and gorgeous hand made glass eyes. He wears a snug hat and jumper hand dyed and knitted using a blend of pure wool and Alpaca.
Jacob sheep have wonderfully soft fleeces and the breed are famous for their patches of both dark and light wool, ranging in colour from white to grey and brown to black. These colours can be mixed during spinning to produce even more natural shades.
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.
