Bearly Bears has been creating individual mohair and alpaca hand-sewn teddy bears since 1996. I started off creating small and tiny teddy bears which fit in the palm of my hand ('barely' bears) but have evolved my pattern over the years to include a variety of sizes.
My bear pattern is is based on traditional, older style bears and features a prominent back, longer arms, a more prominent snout and larger feet. Each bear is unique while clearly belonging to the same family.
I use mohair and alpaca as the main fabric for the large bears, and mohair and mini bear fabric for the smaller bears. They are finished off with ultrasuede for paw pads; glass buttons or beads for eyes; and hand-stitched nose and mouth features. The bears are stuffed with polyester fibre fill or wool stuffing and sometimes have steel shot for added weight.
The bears come with a swing tag listing their name, date of birth, and materials used. They are signed on their left foot with 'Bearly Bears' and their year of birth.
The bears are designed for adult collectors and are not suitable for children under 10 years of age. Care should be taken to ensure children cannot swallow any small items should they come loose due to excessive wear and tear.
I hope you love my bears as much as I do.
