Meet Clara - a wonderful Waldorf inspired Heirloom Doll.
Clara has a twin rother called Carl, and together they run a small illustration company called Pen and Ink": Clara specialises in detailed pencil drawings and Carl uses all the colours in the rainbow in his ink drawings. Clara works from a small cottage in her hometown of Cragton, In the Scottish dales. she loves windswept walks along the cliffs with her sheepdog Alice, and likes to knit large oversized scarves to keep her warm during her wanders. If the weather is good, they picnic on the cliffs watching the seagulls while Clara plays guitar and Carl sings along.
Clara comes dressed in a removable cotton dress, handknit collar, cotton bloomers, cotton head scarf and leather handbag.
She will arrive to you in a cotton or wool drawstring ag for her protection.
My collection of Waldorf dolls are inspired by traditional Waldorf doll making techniques, using a wool core head to "sculpt a beautiful face and arms. I have then combined my own style of doll making and love of textiles to create unique Waldorf style dolls with cloth body and arms. Faces are left deliberately simple in order for a child to impart their own imagination on their doll. The wool used to layer inside the head is warm and retains scent, imparting a feeling of comfort and familiarity for your child. Each doll is handmade, takes up to 10 hours to complete, and is a unique, one off design. I only ever make one of each style.
Materials: Pure NZ Wool, organic cotton, vintage fabrics and new fibrefill
Skin Fabric is De Witte Engel interlock Jersey fabric - the gold standard in doll making!
Caring for your doll:
Waldorf Dolls are made for play, but not for the washing machine! Please spot clean any small marks, or hand wash gently with a ph neutral detergent, such as Eco Store. lay flat in a warm spot to dry, out of direct sunlight.
Rosy cheeks will fade with time, feel free to top up those cheeks with beeswax crayon or a tiny amount of blush.
