Little Wensleydale wool teddy bear Marris, is a very keen botanist who has an interest in rare wild flowers. A spring meadow dotted with Cowslips is a rare sight nowadays but these pretty spring flowers are an important early nectar source for bees … honey … which of course, interests bears!! Our little bear named Marris, is hoping to change intensive agricultural practices, and the use of herbicides and pesticides, in the hope of saving these declining but vitally important insects – a tall order for a small bear!!
Hand knitted from lovely soft Wensleydale wool, with very appealing hand made glass eyes and embroidered wool nose, this cute little teddy bear really needs some help with his conservation work!
