Little Aldwyn is a very special little bear being hand knitted in pure North Ronaldsay wool, one of the most endangered of our British rare breeds.
For Aldwyn I have used a mix of naturally coloured North Ronaldsay wool creating a warm grey shade with brown tones.
In fact, for each North Ronaldsay 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 and almost double coat of softer under wool and coarser outer hairs, which can add more depth of colour to the yarn.
Aldwyn is lovely and soft but due to the slightly hairy nature of the wool, he is a little too coarse for bears intended for babies or children – great if you need a bear for the man in your life!!
Please note that Aldwyn does have glass eyes and therefore he is not suitable for babies or children.
