A clutch of unfinished teddies
These little bears are collectibles, not toys. They are not suitable for young children as they have small parts.
They are stuffed with a heavy weight polyester fibre fill that conforms to BS5852, BS1425 and EN71-3 2013.
The yarn is vintage 100% cashmere by Jaeger.
Their eyes are small seed beads.
Arms and legs are cord threaded so as to be moveable.
Having been created in warmer climes, the teddies found it chilly when they returned to the UK so each one now sports a knitted jumper (or dress in the case of the girls). Many of the teddies also demanded a scarf.
These tiny clothes are knitted in crochet cotton on 1mm needles.
One thing I found when knitting the sweaters was that if I happened to drop a stitch I stood no chance of picking it up again and carrying on in the way that I could when doing normal sized knitting. No, if I made a mistake the whole lot had to be undone and restarted.
