*Green Shantung Silk*
This handcrafted Darby Doll has been made to last using safe all natural materials. Every stitch has been carefully placed, checked over, and strength tested to make sure a high level of quality is achieved for your little one. This doll’s body is made from 100% Shantung Silk and her skin is a cotton tricot fabric from Holland.
The doll’s hair has been made from a brushed wool mohair yarn and is adorned with a sewn on wool felt flower that has a glass bead center. Around her neck is a hand dyed crinkled ribbon bow.
The facial details have all been hand embroidered using cotton floss.
This doll has been stuffed with clean, fluffy wool that warms to the touch. A bit of quartz sand has been added to the feet and hands to allow the doll to be able to stand on its own with a little balancing practice.
Spot cleaning only for this little doll. Eventually you will need to re-apply the dolls cheeks using blush or a red beeswax crayon on a small piece of soft cotton cloth*. Gently dab the cheeks with color loaded cloth until you have the desired look.
*Every doll comes with a little touch-up cloth to re-apply those rosy cheeks if they get loved off a little.
Darby Dolls are approximately 7” tall.
Materials: Cotton & Sheep’s Wool, Sand
