Shrewsbury is a traditional Merrythought teddy bear made from antique-gold coloured mohair. He has felt paws, regular polyester filling and safety eyes.
Merrythought was founded in 1930 by Mr W.G. Holmes. Today the company is run by his great-granddaughters, Sarah and Hannah Holmes, and production is still based at the original site in Ironbridge, Shropshire, England.
