This must be my softest creation yet! I have knitted the doll's clothes in organic Angel touch alpaca yarn in its natural grey color - so no dyes are used on the fiber. The same yarn is used for the hair, which is in natural brown shade. The shirt and face are made using organic cotton fabric, and the stuffing is organic wool.
This doll is safe even for small babies as there is nothing loose and there are no small parts that can be swallowed (please note that babies under the age of 1 should not sleep with any stuffed toys to avoid the risk of suffocation). Its softness makes it very suitable for cuddling and comfort. The big baggy part will retain warmth when tucked cosily next to its little owner.
The doll is a one piece creation - the clothes cannot be taken off.
The yarn, fabric the stuffing are certified organic, sourced as follows:

wool fill: www.greenfibres.co.uk
shirt fabric: www.siebenblau.de

Here are some facts I learned about this alpaca yarn, called Angel Touch, from the distributor: http://www.perunaturtex.com/organic1.htm
The Alpaca animals (graceful creatures, looking a bit like lamas) have lived in the Andes for 8,000 years, grazing on wild pastures 4,000 meters above sea level.
Fiber sorting employs dozens of women highly skilled in quality control and tactile recognition of fiber fineness. The fiber is spun in a Skal inspected mill under direct supervision for organic standards. The yarn is certified by FLO-CERT for Fair-trade standards.
* Alpaca is almost indestructible - fine woven alpaca in good condition have recently been discovered in Peruvian ruins dating back 2500 years.
* Healthy and comfortable to wear - no lanolin or other oils in the fleece
* Alpaca fiber has a hollow fiber core - creating superior warmth with little weight.
Alpaca is lighter, 20% warmer, silkier and has no pilling compared to wool or cashmere. The finest of all Alpaca grades is Organic Baby Alpaca, used to knit this doll.
