The original Shetland Teddy Bear established 1997.
Delightful, collectable, handmade bears produced from recycled traditional Fair Isle knitwear. Each bear comes with his own name and personality making them as individual and unique as we are!
In the Shetland tradition their names take the form of a Christian and a place name such as Bertie 'o' Brough. There is also a reply card so that new owners can say where the bears have gone to live.
It takes approximately 3 to 4 hours to create each bear, and each develops its own character.
Outlets in Lerwick are The Spiders Web, Visit Shetland, The Hansel, Ninian and The Shetland Museum and Archives, Bears are also available from the Quendale Mill in Dunrossness.
Other outlets are Sheila Fleet Gallery in Orkney and Touched by Scotland in Aberdeenshire. Bears are also available on Northlink Ferries travelling between Shetland and Aberdeen.
