Astor B. Bear is a bit of a dreamer. Why, even the colour of his fur is like a soft evening cloud. He would love to go home with you to wonder and imagine together!

Astor, who is 5.75 inches tall, is stitched from a lovely hand-dyed soft pink-lilac mohair silk fiber fabric with the tiniest of hand stitches. He is gently rubbed with tea for a lovely worn look and carefully hand-tinted to accentuate his delicate features. Even his tiny nose has been given a subtle application of beeswax so that it catches the light ever so slightly. He also has a teeny tiny bobbed bear tail as all Sweet Souls bears do!

His little body is filled with wool and steel shot for a nice weight in your hand and his piercing black eyes are of German glass. Astor also has tiny claws stitched to his hands and feet. Astor B. is 5-way jointed - she has a wobble cotter pin joint at the neck and has thread jointed arms and legs

Astor also comes with her favorite place to rest - a comfy dotted upolstery cotton pin cushion which has been appropriately aged to match Astor.. It is filled with polyfiberfil and glass beads for weight. It's also merrily trimmed with vintage rayon ribbon, hand crafted cotton rose and three vintage buttons. Mr. Bear sits atop this little pinkeep just perfectly all by himself (he's not attached) so that you can move him or change his look as you like [but if you would like me to stitch him to the cushion just let me know when you order].

Master Astor is wearing tiny vintage cotton knit trousers that are removable and has a dapper ribbon neck tie adorned with a lovely fluffy cotton aster. (also removable).

This sweetie will travel to you snuggled in his own quilted drawstring sleep saque [also hand-dyed and sewn by the artist] so he will be safe and warm on her journey. He also will be carrying his personalized Sweet Souls hang tag which has been signed and dated.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this little bear! He's already dreaming of his new home!
