Fingal is a country bear who spends most of his days pottering around outside on the station platform. He is easily recognisable as he is usually wearing a cap to keep his ears warm and carrying the felt satchel that he uses to store the treasures he finds when he is out and about. He often collects plants and flowers and the soft felt protects them until he gets back to the station and shows his bear friends.
When a special length of Harris tweed ( woven in the Island of Harris ) was *waulked on the station platform by the lovely Gaelic singing ladies Sgioba Luaidh Inbhirchluaidh Fingal was so captivated with the process that he asked for a scarf to be made for him from the finished woven wool. He duly got a scarf which he rarely takes off .....must be the softness of the hand waulking
*waulking - the technique of finishing newly woven tweed by soaking and thumping it rhythmically to shrink and soften it.
