Merrythought Handmade Antique Panda 10"
Crafted from rich cream and black mohair, Merrythought’s much-admired panda is a timeless character with a particularly appealing expression. His distinctive colours, which include black mohair eye ‘patches’ and wool felt paws, are brought to life by a traditional British racing-green bow.
MATERIALS: Mohair, 100% Wool Felt, Bean Filled, Satin Ribbon, Cotton Thread
Merrythought use only the finest quality mohair or alpaca plush, these materials are then cut to each soft toy’s unique set of patterns, many of which are based on original templates from the earliest years. Incorporating other natural fabrics, such as wool felt and cotton, the pieces are expertly worked with traditional needle and thread to form each part of the bear.
The eyes, legs, arms and joints are skilfully sewn and assembled by hand, gradually creating the recognisable characteristics of the Merrythought bear. Taking time to fill the toy to an optimum weight, it is then ready for the finishing touches; a carefully hand-embroidered nose and smile, a thorough brush and trim, and a neatly tied ribbon bow.
As a signature of quality, Merrythought's exceptional soft toys are finished with a prestigious stamp of approval – the famous Merrythought gold-and-black label stitched to the right paw. The teddy bear is then ready to start its journey as a lifelong friend, continuing the magical Merrythought story for another generation.
Each Merrythought soft toy in the Traditional Collection is presented with a drawstring bag, to help keep your new companion clean and dust-free.
