New! Teeny Weeny teddies

This is a teeny weeny teddy. He and his friends have taken up virtual residence in my shops. He is only about 5cm tall, and barely 4cm wide. But he has a huge personality! It seems to be a strange fact about teddies that even though many are made the same way, yet each is an individual. They are all made from pure wool from the Shetland islands (from Jamieson and Smith) - is it possible that after all the scouring, dyeing, spinning and knitting, they have inherited a spirit from the Shetlands? Forged in biting cold winds, sea-sprayed heather, the echoing calls of grey seals and Up Helly Aa.... Who knows.
