FAQ

 

What are your dolls made of?

My dolls are all handcrafted using entirely natural materials.

For my more traditional Waldorf dolls the hair can be made of mohair boucle yarn( curly hair )or brushed mohair yarn(straight hair) that are designed for doll making. Sometimes I also use anymal fibres for creatring hair for my dolls with more traditional faces. 

 

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.   For this, I normally use  Alpaca hair, angora mohair or Teeswater locks.

 

Some 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 collectable item. 

 

The outer fabric of my more traditional 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.

For my art dolls I sometimes use Witte Engel Skin Fabric.

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Most of my traditional Waldorf dolls have a nose, (which is not how a Waldorf doll is originally made) as most of the time people request this if they are given the choice.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?

Most of my dolls that I make for sale are posted here on my website. I always post ready made dolls here first, and if they do not sell here in a few days, I post them on Etsy as well. 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. 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 enough space to make my own creations, therefore I can not guarantee  that I always have space for custom order.

 

Unfortunately I can not take any more custom orders this year.

 

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 let me know the size of the doll you would love. 

At this stage I inform you if I have space on the waiting list or not.

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

I normally take full payment at this point.

 

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. Custom made dolls cost slightly more than my other dolls, as it takes lots of conversation to make them right, therefore I need to spend often twice as much time to create them as other dolls.

However, this year unfortunately, I can not take any more  custom orders.

 

 

How much do they cost?


Traditional Waldorf dolls cost £290- £380 depending on how much clothes they have and what I use for hair.

It takeslonger to make dolls with straight hair than with curly hair, so the ones with straight hair are a bit more expensive. The basic price you see below includes one dress and underpants with the doll. The baby doll would come with a nappy and a romper.

Additional clothes and knitted jacket, booties or bonnets are available for an additional charge.

 

14" Traditional dolls from  £300(curly),  from £330 (straight)

16" Traditional dolls from  £340(curly), from £380 (straight)

15" Traditional Baby Waldorf doll  from £410 (brushed mohair hair straight)

13.5" Traditional baby Waldorf doll from £380 (brushed mohair hair straight)

Art dolls with sculpted faces and hair made using animal hair:

12" from £580

14-15" from £640

16-17" from £710  

The prices of art dolls depend on what I use for hair and how much clothes the doll has.

I can make a doll with traditional face and hair made using animal hair, like alpaca hair, angora goat's hair or curly Wensleydale locks or other sheep's wool. If I use Animal fibre for hair instead of yarn, your doll will be £60-90 more depending on what I use for hair.

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

If I add weight to a doll it is an additional £25. 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.
