Materials and making
These bears are NOT toys. They have small parts such as beaded eyes. They are NOT made to toy safety standards and are collectibles for adults only.
Each bear is hand knitted in 100% cashmere yarn. There are nine separate tiny knitted pieces for each bear which are carefully sewn together before the filling is added. After that the eyes are sewn in place and the nose embroidered. Separate tiny pieces of felt are then sewn onto the hands and feet to create the paws.
Their paw pads are wool felt.
They are filled with polyester fibre fill which complies with BS5852 and EN71-3 2013
The clothes are knitted in crochet cotton on tiny needles and can be removed with care. Each jumper is knitted in one piece as too many seams would spoil such a tiny garment.
Although only tiny, these teddies take many hours of work to create and often require the use of a magnifying glass.
Having created the current collection I have now run out of the cashmere wool which I was using so I doubt whether I will ever add any more bears like these.
