Welsh Huggies

New to Tweedies are the Welsh Huggies - much larger than the teddies, they measure approx. 10" high from the tips of their ears to their bottoms when sitting down. Self supporting when sitting but their legs go floppy when the are picked up, making them so easy to hug.

Designs may vary from time to time depending on the tweeds being produced by Trefriw Woollen Mills in the Conwy Valley, N Wales.

The colours of the beautiful cloths really do echo the colours and moods of the Welsh landscape.

Each Huggie is lovingly handcrafted and comes with his / her own name, edition no and hand knitted Welsh wool hats and scarves. Oh yes, and they also have a teddy bear button sewn onto their left ear - hallmark of a Tweedies Huggie.

Beautiful Welsh Huggies just asking for a home and especially a hug, but please remember Tweedies are collectables, NOT toys.

Here they are: You can click on each picture to give a better view of the tweeds.
