Sundance is made from beautifully soft long faux fur fabric in a patchwork of white, black, bright yellow and purple. His face is sculpted from white and black mohair and he has flashes of long yellow faux fur on his ears. His body is crafted from sumptuously soft and dense golden orange faux fur. He is partially stuffed and weighted with poly-pellets to give him a slightly heavier weight. His sparkling eyes are hand-painted and have delicate felt lids and he has an adorable tail! Sundance's foot pads are made from striking hand painted upholstery velvet and he has a hand embroidered nose in coordinating coloured threads.
Sundance is a one-of-a-kind design made especially for The Bear Garden.

This is done from many layers of co-ordinating, soft-cotton tapestry thread, which perfectly complement the bear's mohair.
