Mohair What should you make your new teddy bear out of?  Most beginners will start out using plush craft fabric they can find at their local craft or fabric store.   That is fine for a few bears, but soon you will want to find a greater variety of fabrics.

One of the most common plush fabrics that teddy bear artists create their designs out of is mohair.

What is mohair?  It is a type of wool that comes from one specific type of goat - the angora goat.
