This is Castagno, a very exclusive bear. I have waited for almost 20 years to get my hands on a mohair like this and finally Steiff Schulte made it as an exclusive for one time only. It is such a deep and warm colour and the mohair is really soft. Castagno has an alpaca inset in his face to give him a bit more definition and his ears were also made in two colours. His beautiful paws were made of felt that I needle-sculpted into a 3 dimensional shape. This bear can stand unaided as most of my animals can. I work hard to make my designs in a way that they can take more postures that just sitting down. I stuffed this bear with glass beads and fibrefill which makes him feel nice and weighty. I made a custom collar from fabric I found on a quilt fair in the Alsace in France. Two bells that can of course be removed, complete his accessories. His soulful eyes have rims giving him a young and somewhat vulnerable expression. His nose was made using my signature felt technique.
This beautiful bear is available for adoption now
