Sir Heffalump really lives up to his name! He is a gentle giant of a teddy bear! He is beautifully crafted from a striking combination of sumptuously soft and dense chocolate brown faux fur fabric with rich darker tipping. His body is made from long and wavy warm honey cream mohair which creates a fabulous contrast. His face is sculpted from the same mohair and he has flashes of long mohair on his ears and tail. He is partially stuffed and is weighted with poly-pellets to give him a lovely heavy weight. His mesmerising sparkling flecked eyes are hand-painted and have delicate airbrushed felt lids. Sir Heffalump's foot pads are made from thick brown wool felt and he has a magnificent hand embroidered nose in coordinating coloured threads.
Sir Heffalump is a one-of-a-kind design made especially for The Bear Garden.

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.
