First installment for Custom made personal approx. 40 cm / 16 inch Companion Doll according to waldorf pedagogy reserved for Cristina
This doll is individual handmade from natural materials. Its head is sculpted in the traditional Waldorf style and its facial features are hand embroidered.
The body is made of 100% swiss cotton interlock in the color cafe au lait
The hair is made from 100% pure undyed lambswool in black/dark brown
Hair style: long
Eye color: very dark brown
The dolls clothing will be one tunic dress made from purple linen (like on the picture).
One hand knit cotton flower hat (like on the picture) and set of hand knit socks in green and a little matching bag.
The soft cotton skin is stuffed with 100% organic washed and carded wool.
When cuddled, a wool stuffed doll takes on the warmth of the child, making it come "alive."
The dolls eyes and mouth are hand embroidered with lots of loving care.
The appearance is intentionally simple in order to allow the child playing with it to improve or strengthen imagination and creativity. Its legs and arms are flexible, allowing natural postures.
The doll is hand washable. Please see doll care instructions in my profile.
"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.
