The eBear online bear show is now open! We have 15 brand new bears available in this show. The group photo is above, and I'll share the individual photos below.
Head through to our Show Page to see more photos and details on each of the bears.

Exciting news! We now have coloured DMC perle thread (the exact same thread we use for all of our bear noses) available in our Fur Addiction store.
After struggling to find suppliers that offered a wide variety of useful colours at a decent price, we decided to stock them ourselves. We've bundled them into lots of 3 similar colours, and are offering them at nearly half the price of the big retailers. It will now be much more affordable to have the right colours in your stash when you need them!
Some examples of our bears with coloured noses are shown below :)

We've been busily working away on our eBear online show bears lately, so I haven't had a lot to post about here sadly. But we did just finish this gorgeous girl, and decided to show her off now rather then wait - as that little face was just too cute to hold back!
Her name is 'Toddler Scarlet Avery' and we have just listed her on eBay at a less then usual RRP for only 3 days. It's a great opportunity to grab one of our bears without having to wait for a custom bear (of which the wait time is now out to 12 months!).

We finished another custom bear this weekend - a stunning 16" panda-style ted in some hand-dyed long pile mohair. The collector had requested a silvery purple, and I think we managed to get a pretty cool colour using her brief.
We asked our Facebook followers which nose thread they though would work best, and also asked the commissioning collector as well. Everyone was pretty evenly divided on which colour they though would suit the bear, but the collector chose the middle colour.
You can see just how nicely the colour looks in the image below, taken just after we finished embroidering and shading the face of this sweet teddy.
Next came the feet - and we ended up with some nice tickly toes. The fabric used for the hands and feet is actually the backing of the mohair. You can see just how much more vibrant the backing colour is to the fur!
And then finally we had one finished custom panda bear. Complete with a very cute, very girly purple princess crown!
She has been adopted :)
