GRUFF (REALISTIC BLACK BEAR ON ALL FOURS)
Gruff is one of the Bear Bits Swan Song Collection, made in 2017 after 24 years of professional bear making, and so is part of the last special collection that Jean and Bill make.

Gruff is a beautiful black bear of competition quality -made from amazingly dense 24mm Schulte alpaca with a contrasting pale mohair muzzle that has been reverse dyed so that the individual pale fibres are slightly grizzled. Gruff stands 38cm at the shoulder and is 60cm from nose to tail so hes larger than previous bears made in this style. He has claws, 3D pads, and an armature in each leg as well as in his back, 6 joints, eyebrows and eyelids and the classic Bear Bits naturally shaped embroidered nose a truly lovely bear that looks good in many different poses
Nose to tail 46cm/18", Sit 36cm/14", Stand to shoulder 30cm/12"
