Lyle is a handsome bear with a dreamy, wistful expression. He is mostly made from a medium length, wildly distressed German mohair that Barbara dyed in colours of cream, gold, coffee and dusky pink. His face and the front of his ears are a very long and fluffy pale, sandy beige mohair. Lyle's hand-dyed velvet paw pads complement his mohair perfectly.
Lyle has beautiful hand-painted glass eyes with hand-coloured eyelids to match his colouring. His neatly embroidered nose captures the colours of his eyes and mohair. He is stuffed with plastic pellets and polyester which gives him a lovely cuddly weighted feeling!
Lyle is a one-of-a-kind design made especially for The Bear Garden.
Barbara-Ann Bears are made by talented husband and wife team of Barbara-Ann and Andy Cunningham in Kent, England. They are known around the world for their creative, colourful and wacky designs! Barbara hand-dyes her own mohair and fabrics, and as nearly every bear is a one-of-a-kind creation, no two are ever the same! Andy has the painstaking task of embroidering the noses. This is done from many layers of co-ordinating, soft-cotton tapestry thread, which perfectly complement the bear's mohair.
