100% Natural Wool Grizzly Bear – Fair Trade Eco-friendly Kid’s Felt Toys

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These Grizzly Bear Felt Toys are adorable items for home decoration or sweet children’s gifts! They are hand-made from 100% un-dyed wool. These items are made by dry needle felting, a technique that transforms un-spun wool into sculptured creations, such as animals or birds. They are made from pure wool that has an outer layer of scales, giving strands a jagged edge. This allows the fibers to become entangled when a barbed needle is repeatedly inserted into the ball of un-spun wool.

Small (7.5cm)
Large (11cm)

WHO MADE THESE NATURAL WOOL GRIZZLY BEAR FELT TOYS?

These Felted Bears are produced by the Spectacled Bear Conservation Society, a Threads of Peru partner NGO that works to ensure the conservation of the Spectacled Bear and also to support indigenous artisan weavers. Each Bear is hand-made by indigenous artisans from communities in the “Rio de la Leche” watershed in northwestern Peru, an area with high unemployment, extreme poverty and where SBC conducts its research and conservation programs.
