Description

This is Nova, she is a very sweet and soft Waldorf-inspired doll that is ready to be adopted and travel to her new home today! She is 14” tall with blush colored skin and brown embroidered eyes. She has baby doll body proportions. The dolls appearance is intentionally simple in order to allow the child playing with it to develop the imagination and creative play. For instance, she has simple features, or a simple neutral expression so the child can imagine the personality and mood of the doll and if the doll is awake or asleep.

Nova is sewn from high quality 100% cotton skin-colored jersey. Her hair is made of brown polyester yarn. The head is made with knit fabric of 100 % cotton, sculpted in the traditional Waldorf method and stuffed with cleaned sheep's wool (see more details below). The cheeks are blushed with non-toxic beeswax. The body, arms, and legs are also stuffed with wool stuffing making a soft and warm doll with a nice weight.

The pictured outfit will be included:
• Fun dress
• Flannel diaper
• Socks
• Nova's favorite blanket

All clothes can be removed and dressed again.

Netchie dolls are handmade with love, one at a time, by me, using high quality materials that have been tested and are non toxic. The art of creating these dolls by hand makes every doll unique. I'm open to swapping outfits or making changes to the doll. For example, different color dress, different hair, or modifications to the doll for a special needs child at no extra charge.

Handmade in my smoke free home that is free of air fresheners or scented candles. The dolls are handcrafted and all materials are stored appropriately in an upstairs room.

Nova is stuffed with high quality, U.S.A grown wool is blended specifically for extra softness and resilience. 30% organic content. OKEO TEK certified Standard 100, guaranteed to be free of harmful or toxic substances.

• PROPER GRAZING METHODS: Growers rotate pastures to prevent overgrazing and soil erosion. Proper grazing creates a higher quality wool and protects the health of the sheep
• PREDATOR FRIENDLY: Trained sheep dogs guard the flock. Natural predators are not poisoned, trapped, or shot.
• HEALTHY VETERINARY PRACTICES: Only certain kinds of medications and supplements can be used to treat the sheep. Sheep raised in open pastures are healthier and require less vet care.
• FIELDS PROTECTED FROM PESTICIDES: No use of herbicides and pesticides on fields where the sheep will be grazing. Wool is spot tested to ensure that no harmful chemicals have been used.
• OPPOSE CHEMICAL PROCESSING OF THE WOOL: This wool is not carbonized (dipped in strong acid to dissolve residual matter), dipped (at many farms, sheep are dipped in pesticides), or bleached.
• SHEEP FRIENDLY: Highly skilled shearing crews trained to shear the sheep with as much care and as harmlessly as possible

FAQs

Touch up small stain areas with soap and water and scrub with a toothbrush.

When the doll is ready for a complete bath, fill a basin with cool water and a mild soap. Wrap any long loose hair styles in a nylon stocking to prevent matting and felting. Immerse the doll and gently suds the soil away, scrubbing extra dirty areas with a toothbrush.

Be careful not to rub the hair. Rinse the doll in cool water, and BLOT excess moisture with a towel - do not wring. Re-shape the doll as necessary and dry flat on a towel, face up, away from heat.
Each doll takes me 5-6 hours to make, not including the outfit. The most time-consuming part is the hair! The wig cap is knitted on a round loom, sewn firmly to the head, and then "hair" is latched in a strand at a time. This process takes about 2 1/2 hours.
