Love this


Thistle is a handmade collectable artist bear, designed and made by myself.
He stands at 12" tall and was sewn from hand dyed alpaca fabric in soft greens. A complete one off bear he is fully jointed with 5 cotter pin joints, has safety eyes and a hand embroidered nose.
Thistle wears a lined sleeveless jacket in a black and brown tiny check with black lining and has a matching cap that sits between his ears.
He wears his name on a wooden tag and Bearlescent is to the back of one ear on a polymer clay button.
He is a collectable bear and not suitable as a childs toy.
He has been added to my bear register and will arrive with birth certificate.
He is looking forward to being adopted and moving to a new forever home.
Thistle would make a lovely keepsake or heirloom gift.

He will be posted 2nd class parcel post by Royal Mail and will be sent tracked and signed for.
Thank you for looking.


When I first started making and selling my bears they were all made from beautiful hand dyed fabrics in either alpaca or velvet wool, more recently I have made mohair bears but still like to make a few in the alpaca fabrics.
In August there was a small woolfest in our village and I was asked if I would like to sit and demonstrate, pondering over what I could do I decided to take some Alpaca wool fabric and start sewing up a bear...this was the result of the fabric I took.
