Regular price £180.00

Byron is a wild thing, yet a very friendly and thoughtful wild thing, a one of a kind, hand dyed mohair artist bear by Barbara-Ann Bears

Byron stands 10.5 inches (26 cm) tall and is 8 inches (20 cm) sitting.

Byron is a thinker, he likes to sit and watch the clouds drift across the sky, to wonder where they've been and where they're going. Yes, he has a very wild and shaggy appearance but you can see that Byron has the gentlest and sweetest character, he'll want to know how you are, how your day went, he'll tell you not to worry, that every cloud has a silver lining, that every flower needs a little rain, that the storms will pass and there'll be bright days ahead. In the end you might find yourself pleading "stop it with your constant meteorological metaphors, please, just for a moment" that's when you'll find that your worries have slipped away and you're just a happy crazy person shouting at a teddy bear.

Byron is made from a gorgeous, long, straggly mohair that Barbara has dyed in soft, natural colours, the pile has been dyed very delicately, it's mainly creamy with some jade, turquoise, peach and pink while the backcloth has taken on more colour, that is mainly turquoise, with some green, amber and sky blue. Byron had hand-dyed velvet paw pads that compliment his mohair perfectly. He is a very well coordinated and naturally coloured bear.

Byron has beautiful hand painted glass eyes with hand coloured eyelids, a splendid nose embroidered with individual threads to complement his mohair and a broad and cheerful smile. He is stuffed with plastic pellets and polyester stuffing to make him a little heavier and more cuddly.

Byron has the warmest and most loving of personalities. Despite his wild appearance Byron is quite restrained and thoughtful, he could be thinking how lucky he is to have a warm, loving home, or just day dreaming about clouds.
