Personal Companion Doll 40 cm / 16 inch

This Knecht Ruprecht Companion Doll will be customized to your wishes. You choose:

- Skin tone
- Hair color
- Hair yarn
- Hairstyle
- Eye color

This Knecht Ruprecht Companion Doll is individual handmade in Austria with love and great attention to detail. Only the most exquisite materials made from all natural fibers and organic materials where possible are used.

Its head and body is sculpted in the traditional Waldorf style and its facial features are hand embroidered. Knecht Ruprecht Companion Dolls have a simple bottom, simple hands and feet. Arms and legs are moderately curved, freely movable, allowing natural postures. All Knecht Ruprecht Companion Dolls are soft to the touch and stuffed firmly with 100% organic washed and carded wool.

The soft 100% cotton doll tricot skin is available in five different shades from Marzipan to Chocolate and is approved in accordance with the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, Class 1 certification. It is made in Switzerland and it is a very high quality fabric which is used and approved since years for the purpose of Waldorf Doll making. This fabric is very resistant and allows a long lifetime of the dolls I make.

Nearly all wool and felt materials used for my dolls are coming from the local farmers collective Manufaktur Haslach. This Collective supports different rare and endangered species of sheep and organic farming, no pesticides or chemicals are used. The wool is only washed with soda, mild soap and warm water.

The hair of your doll will be either mohair yarn, organic lambswool or merino yarn. Mohair yarn is very soft and Merino yarn doesn't fuzz or pill and is perfect for combing and styling to unleash a child’s creativity. The dolls hair is hand stitched on the dolls head in a way that it can be finger combed. Longer hairstyles can be braided.

This Knecht Ruprecht Companion Doll will come with about four pieces of outfit made from natural materials like pure linen, cotton, silk, cotton velvet or lambswool including: One tunic dress and pants or dungarees or a skirt. One hat handknit from 100% lambswool and one set of shoes and a little bag made from 100% wool felt.

This Knecht Ruptrecht Doll is made in a smoke free and pet free environment with love and great attention to detail. Each and every doll I make is unique and handmade by myself.

When cuddled, a wool stuffed doll takes on the warmth of the body, making it come "alive." The appearance is intentionally simple in order inspire imagination and to strengthen creativity.

"As the child nurtures & mothers the doll, he is - not simply metaphorically but also in reality - caring for himself. It is important therefore, that we offer a doll that closely resembles him/her, not so much in features but rather in proportion. The child's "felt experience" of the doll will remain with him/her. So let's keep the doll simple, proportional & tactilely truthful."

Words by Shariffa Oppenheimer in regards to Waldorf dolls.

Care Instructions:
As the doll’s lifetime progresses, almost inevitably at some stage the marks and stains of experiences show themselves. They add to the character of the doll and the children themselves are least of all disturbed by them. For the most part, I recommend people to wash their cloth dolls as little as possible. The odd stain or dirty mark can be taken care of with a soft, damp cloth, and patting rather than strong rubbing works best.
The inner wool stuffing is antibacterial and self cleaning and for this reason rarely needs to be washed. When it it really necessary for dolly to have a bath however, it can be done as follows: Dissolve a very small amount of wool washing detergent in 30 degree warm water. Submerge the doll in the liquid. The length of time the doll should soak depends really on how dirty it is. As a rule longer soaking and less rubbing is better for the doll. After soaking the doll a while, gently squeeze it through, keeping in mind to rather be giving it a bath than washing it as one washes clothes. If you do too much kneading and rubbing the inner wool can become felted. To finish with, let some clean water in to the doll’s bath to rinse it off. Repeat this process as often as it necessary. Then let the doll drain and wrapping it in a dry, fluffy towel, carefully press out the water. Repeat as often as is necessary, using new dry, fluffy towels and then gently push the head and body back into form. Then with the head upwards, lie it on a dry towel in a warm place to finish drying. It is not a good idea to lie it in direct sun or directly on a very hot heater.
