What are your dolls made of?

 

My dolls are all handcrafted using entirely natural materials.

For my traditional Waldorf dolls the hair can be made of mohair boucle ( curly hair )or brushed mohair (straight hair) that are designed for doll making.

 

For my natural fibre art dolls  I use animal fibres or brushed mohair yarn crocheted into a cap. The animal fibres I make into a weft and then into a wig. This is a lengthy, time consuming process.  Normally I use  Alpaca hair, angora mohair or Teeswater locks.

Sometime I make embroidered hair, for this I use wool yarn.

Dolls that have wefted hair are not suitable for little hands, they are more suitable for older children ( from the age of 7 ) or as a colletible item.

 

The outer fabric of my Waldorf dolls consists of good quality, strong cotton Swiss stockinet to make them last for a long time. This fabric is designed for doll making. It has OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 class 1 certificate. The Swiss stockinet comes in various skin tones. For my organic dolls I use GOTS tested organic jersey. This I only have in a pale skin tone.

Inside, my dolls are filled with sheep's wool which makes these lovely dolls warm and soft. For special requests I can use organic wool for filling the doll.

 

Most of my traditional Waldorf dolls  have a nose, (which is not how a Waldorf doll is originally made) as most of the time people request this if they are given the choice. However I can make the dolls with a more simple face without a nose as well.

 

The basic outfit for my dolls is a dress or top, and underpants or trousers. The colours of the dresses may vary. You may order additional dresses , knitted jackets, booties or hat for an additional charge here.

The eyes and the mouth of the dolls are embroidered using cotton embroidery floss. Mostly I use DMC.

 

 

Where can I buy one of your dolls?

 

All my dolls that I make for sale are posted here on my website. If you are interested in purchasing a doll please check out if there is any doll available here in my shop or in my Etsy shop. In the Etsy shop the dolls might be slightly more expensive because of the additional charges there.

 

I always post pictures of my dolls on my Instagram, Facebook, and Flickr pages once they are ready. You can follow my work on these pages. If you would like to order a custom doll, please contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or send me a message through Facebook.

I take only a very few number of custom orders to leave a enough space to make my own creations. I am hoping to have ready made dolls available in my shop regularly. Once I have a doll ready to sell I post pictures of it on Facebook and announce when and where the doll will be available to purchase.

 

For custom orders I have a waiting list. Once you are on my waiting list it could take 6-10 weeks for your doll to be created.

 

I have a selection of outfits available in my shop. These outfits are ready made, they can be posted in 1-2 working days.

 

 

How do I order a doll?

 

If you would like to place an order you need to email me to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or through Facebook to letting me know the size of doll you would love. I also need to know if you wish to have a traditional doll or a natural fibre art doll with a sculpted face. I'll send you an invoice for £50 non-refundable deposit, and let you know when is your doll going to be made.

Once I have received the payment I put you onto my waiting list.

A couple of weeks before I am ready to start working on your doll I will contact you about the details.

If it is a traditional doll you order I will take full payment at this point.

If it is an art doll with a sculpted face, I will only take the full payment once you have seen pictures of the ready doll.

 

From customers outside the UK I only accept PayPal payment. There is a small additional charge with this.

From customers within the UK I can Accept Bank transfer and Cheque payment as well.

 

 

How much do they cost ?


Traditional Waldorf dolls cost £130-£220 depending on how much clothes they have and what I use for hair. It takes

longer to make dolls with straight hair than with curly hair, so the ones with straight hair are a bit more expensive.

 

14" Traditional dolls  £140-185

16" Traditional dolls  £155-220

15" Traditional Baby Waldorf doll  £195

13.5" Traditional baby Waldorf doll £180

Art dolls with sculpted faces 13-14"-£300-380   15"-16" £370-450,  18" £485-550, prices depend on what I use for hair and how much clothes the doll has,

You can see pictures of my recent work Flickr or on Instagram .

If I add weight to a doll it is an additional £15. I normally use glass beads for weight.

 

Where are you located?

 I am located in the United Kingdom. My dolls are posted from near the Welsh border from a small town called Hereford.
