Felt Bear – Because Survival Is Insufficient
- felt bear with moth repellent
- contains lavender, cedarwood and rosemary
- embroidered with BECAUSE SURVIVAL IS INSUFFICIENT
- makes a lovely gift
Our felt bears contain a pouch of moth repellent, making them a great addition to your project bag, yarn stash or desk.
The bears are embroidered and made by us in our Yorkshire studio. They're stuffed with a mix of toy stuffing and fabric scraps, giving a lovely squashy feel. A pouch of moth repellent is added. The bear is finished by hand sewing the last seam.
Each bear is 115mm tall, 105mm wide at the widest point and 20mm deep.
Each bear contains a sachet of lavender, rosemary and cedar wood chippings. We've chosen these for their well known moth repellent qualities and because the combined smell is more pleasant than just lavender. As well as being moth repellent these scents are soothing and calming. The size of the sachet is shown in one of the photos.
The bears are embroidered with the text BECAUSE SURVIVAL IS INSUFFICIENT . I found this quote in Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel, and it comes from Star Trek
Bears are available in 4 colours - silver, charcoal, caramel and brown. You can choose to leave out the moth repellent.
The felt used is 30% wool, 70% polyester. Bears are stuffed with a mix of polyester toy stuffing and fabric scraps (probably cotton as I've been shirt making). The pouches are made from scraps of fabric too, so the colour of these may vary over time (but they're hidden inside the bear so that shouldn't matter). We embroider using Madeira rayon thread. The labels bear The Unruly Stitch logo and name.
Please note that these bears are not toys and should not be given to small children.
Bears are posted in a cardboard gift box which will fit easily through letter boxes. If you'd like to send a bear as a gift there's the option to post to a different address at checkout. Let us know it's a gift and we'll leave the invoice out and add a card with a message.
If the colour you'd like is out of stock we can make a bear for you within 72 hours. Your whole order will be posted together.
