Little Shetland wool teddy bear, Erskine, is feeling a little chilly wearing just a scarf in early Spring, he is certainly earning his honey sandwich while he poses for the camera!
Erskine is a wonderfully soft pure Shetland wool teddy bear, hand knitted in the naturally coloured fawn wool. He wears a chocolate brown scarf and with an embroidered nose and gorgeous hand made glass eyes – this bear is seriously cute!
Shetland sheep are known for their range of natural fleece colours, used traditionally for Fair Isle knitting, they probably have the best fleece for hand spinning and knitting – eleven natural shades in total and a very fine, soft fleece – perfect for really cuddly teddy bears.
Little knitted teddy bear Erskine is hand made to order.
All of 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. Also being hand knitted in pure wool, the bears really don’t like to be washed in a washing machine, therefore Erskine is not suitable for babies and young children.
