Shaggy Bear

Meet our Shaggy Bear, the friendliest bear out there. He is like the Big Lebowski on your Sunday tea party in the garden, just minding his own business and always in for some fun. It is told that he Shaggy Bear wants his tummy rubbed and if you rub his stomach daily he will see to it that your wishes are granted. Note that it can be difficult to rub his tummy if he is very tiny. When you do rub his stomach you need to do so with a positive attitude. The gesture should be uplifting to your spirits and make you feel happy.

Made In Scotland

This truly unique piece of knitwear is 100% made in Scotland by master crafts people. Each Shaggy Bear is handled individually and tenderly, throughout its entire production, from the first precise stitch to the delicate pressing and folding. The real uniqueness lies in the exclusive Shetland yarn that we developed together with a local spinner creating exceptional colour melanges. Far from everything else in the world we have our own knitting process under one small roof. From cleaning the fleeces, which are coming from local crofters, to dying the wool, spinning yarn and finally knitting this original Shaggy Bear. Be not mistaken, it’s often imitated, never duplicated.

Shaggy Brushed

After knitting and washing all Shaggy Bears with local fresh water they go one by one trough a vintage brushing machine which lifts and pulls the fibres for a loose and relaxed shaggy brush effect. Only traditional teasels, which are a natural product, are used and no man-made brush can replicate the unique brushing effects of the traditional teasel. It's all these delicate stages that result in the softest natural shetland feel that we ever experienced. The real thing.
