      Hi, ‘smallone’,
      Hand colouring by me is normally by a fabric pen where you literally draw and blend on the material and as the mohair/alpaca is two toned, by cutting and shaving through the layers, you get multiple grades of colour… hope that answers you question? Sallyx

    I love it! I want it! I want to hug it! If I can’t have a bear, can I at least have a pattern and instructions? Pretty please!
