SIGI (REALISTIC BROWN BEAR)
Followers of Bear Bits will be familiar with our constant problem of finding natural coloured, plain dense pile suitable for our natural looking bears this spring Bear Basics had some wonderful 24mm dense dark brown alpaca, tipped with black for sale and Sigi is the result. Sigi is beautifully proportioned and made from dense Schulte alpaca with an inset brown mohair muzzle; where the two fabrics meet they are blended together with a bit of subtle airbrushed shading. He has brown glass eyes, quilted 3D polymer pads (on dark brown ultrasuede) and his gentle just-open mouth is combined with a complex, naturally shaped embroidered nose that has been embroidered with very fine thread in order to produce the detailed shape. His muzzle, paws and feet have each been carefully trimmed with scissor sculpting to produce a natural shape in the fur. A combination of 8 disk joints (2 in neck, 1 in each wrist) together with a neck-to-tail backbone (armature) allows for diverse poses. Our bears have evolved from the teddy; they look more natural but never fierce and he will make a good companion.
