I just love this bear! He is around 7" tall and is called Fain which is an old English word for joyful. He is a smaller version of the bear we first made last year called Fred, a style I really like. He is made of matted, scruffy South African mohair decorated with turquoise splodges. We have highlighted the turquoise colour by using turquoise blue cashmere for his pads and paws and we have given him bright turquoise Schulte mohair ears. In style he has a slim body, short rounded arms and short legs with lovely big feet. His pads and paws have needle sculpting and stitched dark turquoise claws, he has a dark turquoise stitched nose and shiny black English glass eyes. He is designed so that he looks up at you with a very appealing expression, he has quite a large snout and small ears set high on the back of his head. Fain is filled with a mix of some steel shot and polyester stuffing so he has some weight but is not madly heavy. By luck I had a turquoise blue button which matched his colours perfectly and I used that for his belly button. I do hope you like him, he really is a very distinctive little bear. Fai costs £75 plus postage.
Please note that as with all our bears, Fain is not a toy and is not suitable for children.
