Mohair Fabric Helmbold – 12mm Sparse – Beige on Brown
This 12mm sparse mohair fabric, called Beige on Brown, from Helmbold is wonderful fabric for making teddy bears and other little characters. The backing is dark brown and with a golden beige, sparse, 12mm pile. The contrast between the pile and backing looks fabulous when trimming back around the muzzle.
This top quality German mohair fabric is particularly good for making smaller bears. as it has a sparse and short pile.
A good cotton sewing thread match is Gutermann Cotton Sewing Thread in shade 2960.
A good extra strong thread match is Gutermann Top Stitch in shade 139.
This mohair fabric is available in 1/16th, 1/8th and quarter metre pieces (the width of the roll is approximately 140cm including the selvedges and, therefore, 1/16th is approx 25cmx35cm, 1/8th is approx 35cmx50cm and a quarter metre will be approximately 50cmx70cm wide).
Please note, although we try our very best, it is very difficult to photograph an exact colour match of the mohair fabric (but we do sell 8cm x 8cm swatches that may help you decide!).
