Bears Comparison

Warning: the pictures may be slow to load.
Milkwood (left) and Staheli Brill were made from the same pattern (one of my own). What makes them such different bears?


The mohair, to begin with. Milkwood's is natural "string" mohair and Staheli's is very short, sparse, and "distressed." The stuffing makes a big difference, too, in how each bear turns out. Milkwood is stuffed with modern "poly" fluff, whereas Staheli is full of excelsior (wood wool) just like the real old-fashioned teddies.
