Finnegan was created in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day and certainly had the “luck o’ the Irish” with him when he sniffed out a rare 4-leaved shamrock! You can make Finnegan from this kit and ensure his continued good luck by making and hanging a hand-crafted ultrasuede shamrock around his neck. He is a 5-way jointed bear, created from a long, sparse pile Steiff-Schulte mohair which contrasts well with his plucked snout, claws and footpads. The eye backing detail and stitched claws on his paws and footpads add additional interest.
