Tambo to Morven
Our featured photo today shows off our growing family – we have a new addition, a Tambo Teddy called Rosclare Reuban. He is made of wool, and the story of the Tambo Teddies is quite interesting. The price of wool was plummeting, and the teddies were a way to highlight the great qualities of wool. The teddy shop has a sign outside:
Apparently the overlocker machine works the opposite way to a normal one. The pieces of wool are cut out using a stanley trimmer, based on patterns, then the teddies are individually sewn using this machine. The wool isn’t local as the merino wool is unsuitable. However, it is Australian wool.
