Claus - 13" hand dyed mohair Christmas artist bear by Emma's Bears - OOAK
By Emma and Mark Nicholson
Claus is a gorgeous little Christmas 2018 teddy! He has been made from some of our stunning dense crimped mohair/viscose blend fur in the original crisp white, some dark charcoal black, and some hand-dyed deep cranberry red. The colour placement was designed in such as way as to pay homage to suit of the Jolly Man himself without being too literal.
The blend of the two different fibres (mohair and viscose) throughout the pile on Claus' fur gives him a lot of extra texture and depth and makes the red really pop. And with the dark piece not being plain dark black, it helps to soften the overall effect as well.
Claus looks out through black glass eyes with faux suede eye whites and has a hand embroidered black perle cotton nose. He is fully T-pin jointed and stuffed with a mix of polyfill and steel shot. His paw pads have our 3D sculpted toes and fingers with tufts of mohair between the pads.
He wears a large shimmery gold satin ribbon around his neck and a pendant of jingly Christmas bells. He is a one of a kind artist creation and looks great sitting next to his friend 'Cranberry', who is available in his own listing.
