Teddy knitting kit - 100% Pure New British 4 ply Wool 

The knitting kit for the Jim Bear contains a pattern designed by Sandra Polley plus 50grms of 4ply yarn (please choose main yarn colour from the drop down box), brown yarn for paws and foot pads, black for nose and mouth, and coloured yarn for scarf (please choose scarf colour from drop down box above).  The main yarn choices are Beige Portland/Manx loaghtan from the National Trust flock and either Shetland/Castlemilk Moorit or Mid Grey from the Essex Wildlife Trust flock.  Also included is a pair of safety eyes.  

You will need:  Size 3mm knitting needles (smaller if you normally knit to a loose tension), sewing needle for wool and 70 grms of stuffing (separate kit is available to include this if required).  

This kit is aimed at an intermediate level knitter due to the complexity of the pattern pieces which are all knitted flat and then the seams are sewn up neatly before inserting the stuffing and the eyes.  The arm and leg joints are formed by using buttons on the outside of the limbs and attaching to the body by sewing through limbs and body several times to fix securely whilst still allowing movement of the limbs. The completed bear is something that will be treasured by adults as well as older children.

Please note:  The pattern states that 100 grm of DK yarn is required but we have discovered that the National Trust 4ply yarn is an ideal alternative and only 50 grm is required.  The finished bear will measure approximatley 30cms tall which is similar to the size shown on the pattern.  The yarn has been spun by the Natural Fibre Company in Cornwall using personally selected fleeces from Rare Breed sheep owned by the National Trust or the Essex Wildlife Trust.

Usually ships in: 1-2 days
