Garfunkel, a one of a kind, hand dyed mohair artist bear by Barbara-Ann Bears

Regular price £340.00

Garfunkel is a very happy and cuddly, one of a kind artist bear by Barbara-Ann Bears in gorgeous, shaggy, hand-dyed mohair

Garfunkel stands 16 inches (40 cm) tall and is 12 inches (30 cm) sitting.

Garfunkel is a very friendly and happy, beautifully coloured bear. In his long, tousled mohair he looks like a wild moor speckled with heather, sedges, bracken, moss and many other moorland plants and flowers. He's a fairly chunky bear with over-sized features, a huge conk and a very impressive tummy, the sort of attributes that will help you sniff out the tiniest morsel of cake from over 2 miles (3.2 km) away and then devour it with great relish. Garfunkel isn't one to wait politely for food, he knows winter is coming (yes, even in spring) and he has to make the most of every opportunity to cram as much nourishment into that cavernous belly to see him through the difficult times ahead... even if there aren't any difficult times ahead.

Garfunkel is made from a long, shaggy, tousled mohair that Barbara has hand dyed in a gorgeous blend of colours, there are reds, greens, golds, terracotta, jade, soft pinks and lilacs. Garfunkel's hand dyed velvet paw pads were dyed to complement his mohair and do so beautifully.

Garfunkel has large, beautiful, hand painted, glass eyes with eyelids which together with his carefully embroidered nose were all made to incorporate the colours of his mohair and as you can see Garfunkel has a huge, beaming smile. Garfunkel is stuffed with polyester stuffing and plastic pellets which make him a little heavier and more cuddly,he is quite a heavy bear.

Garfunkel is a handsome chap, a rugged moorland bear with a twinkle in his eye and a broad smile who is very easy to get along with. So long as you keep a steady supply of food coming Garfunkel will be your best friend for life, he will occasionally remind you that the future is an uncertain thing and a full belly is the best way to prepare yourself from any impending disaster...as long as the impending disaster isn't one you have to run away from...

We will enclose photos with Garfunkel and we are happy to put in a greetings card and gift tags, maybe a birthday card or one for another occasion, you can choose one from our greetings card page and let us know which card you would like.

As with all our bears, Garfunkel is not a toy, he is an adult collectible and unsuitable for children under 14
