The very handsome Hebridean bear named Skipper is a trawlerman by trade (he only fishes using environmentally sustainable methods) and he is also a very brave volunteer Lifeboat bear. Coming originally from the Scottish Islands, being made from rare breed Hebridean sheep’s wool, he knows just how treacherous the stormy seas can be!!
Skipper comes fully dressed in his traditional Guernsey fisherman’s sweater and he wears a sou’wester hat and of course, wellies!! (All of his clothes are removable and knitted using hand dyed pure Shetland wool.)
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.
