Alexander Appleshine is a sweet and gently colourful one of a kind, artist bear in gorgeous hand dyed mohair by Barbara-Ann Bears
Alexander Appleshine stands 11.5 inches( 29cm) tall and is 9 inches ( 23 cm) sitting.
Alexander Appleshine is a happy thoughtful bear, he has a floral kind of colourfulness, like sunflowers or buttercups. He is made from the happy, uplifting colours that seem to disappear in the dark days of winter, but Alexander won't disappear, he'll stay colourful for year after year and his gentle smile will always be there too.
Alexander is made from several different mohairs, he's mostly a short, straight pile mohair that Barbara has hand dyed in shades of lime, jade, deep peach and lilac. His tummy and the underside of his tail are a long, straggly mohair dyed in a strong, sunny yellow with a few splashes of orange and his face and the backs of his ears are a long wispy mohair hand dyed in lemon and buttercup yellows, he's quite a colourful chap. Alexander has hand dyed velvet paw pads which match his mohair perfectly.
Alexander has beautiful, hand painted eyes with hand coloured eyelids, a splendid nose embroidered from individual threads to compliment his colouring and he has a huge, friendly smile. Alexander is stuffed with polyester stuffing and plastic pellets which give him a little extra weight and make him a little more cuddly.
Alexander Appleshine is a very cheerful teddy bear in both personality and colour. If you ever have dark days Alexander will do his best to bring light into them, he'll sit down and listen to all your worries and problems and maybe some of them will just ebb away, that's what we hope anyway.
