Item details



flannel, wool


Height: 8 Inches

The Baby Dolls appearance is intentionally simple in order to allow the child playing with it to develop the imagination and creative play. For instance, it has simple features, or a simple neutral expression. The legs and arms are soft and they are in a knotted or handkerchief style for a young or teething child.

Dolls usually become the first props in a child’s pretend play. Doll play helps to develop language and social skills, making children more creative and less aggressive. 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.

The pictured doll is sewn from high quality 100% cotton skin-colored jersey. 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 a soft flannel fabric. Inside is a trunk stuffed separately with wool, adding a nice weight and perfect for little hands.

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.

The pictured baby Netchie Doll is stuffed with high quality, U.S.A grown wool that 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. Visit for more information.

• 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.

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.
