Brendan is a handsome teddy bear made from soft sparse cinnamon brown coloured mohair. He has delightful black boot button style eyes. His paws are made from thick wool felt and Frank has given him a beautifully stitched nose with a light waxing effect and stitched claws. Brendan is filled with polyester and some plastic pellets, which gives him a nice weight and feel and he wears an unusual ethnic polished stone pendant on a leather cord around his neck.
Brendan is a one-of-a-kind design and made especially for The Bear Garden.
