About the Bears

All of the Raspbearies are hand made by me of the best materials I have available. I work in mohair and alpaca with very few
exceptions. All of the designs are mine with the exception of a few purchased accessories or clothing articles. I often make
accessories for the theme bears to get the correct proportions.

I use both traditional jointing methods (all 5 joints) and the looser 'wobble'  joint in many bears. All bears have German glass eyes,
sometimes with Ultrasuede® eyelids. The paw pads are also Ultrasuede®  and sometimes sculpted. A few bears have Ultrasuede®
claws. Some bears sport skeletons or armatures of either Loc-Line® or Flexlimb® which allows posing. A few bears have a unique neck
joint using Loc-Line® which allows them to tilt their head to keep an eye on you!

Please don't hesitate to email any questions you might have about construction, accessories or special requests.

Meet Faolan!
Faolan (that's Scots/Irish for 'Wolf') is the latest 'Big Guy' at Raspbeary Cottage.
You might have seen him at the Bears Near Bristol Show in September or waving from
the pages of the January 2016 issue of Teddy Bear & Friends magazine.

Faolan is about 33" tall, made of very soft, tipped French Tissavel synthetic fabric.
He has LocLine in his limbs for a bit of pose-ability He also has LocLine in his neck
which allows him to keep an eye on you and his surroundings. He has lidded German glass
eyes, an Ultrasuede mouth and leather-like stuffed vinyl claws. The paws are a
trapunto design which is also needle-sculpted to give a 3D look.

Faolan comes dressed with a Wallace Clan tartan scarf that I brought back from
Scotland this summer.
