Traditional Waldorf dolls are made from cotton interlock knit fabric and wool stuffing. They are often entirely natural. Typically the trademark long hair of a Waldorf doll is made of mohair or boucle. Some doll makers use alternative hair material such as wool, rayon, and cotton. The facial features of a Waldorf doll vary with the maker. Most Waldorf dolls have small suggestions of noses, their eye and mouth colors are generally varied with each doll.
I found about this philosophy about 2 years ago on the wool felting class. One of the girls there told that she is making such a doll to her daughter. At that time I read a lot about this view and liked it very much. For more than a year I wanted to buy one, but was not prepared to pay the high price. Most of the toys are handmade and therefore are not cheap. Now I see two reasons why I couldn't afford for myself to buy a doll. Firstly, I didn't have a daughter yet and more importantly, I didn't see something I would have really loved.
When I found LaFiabaRussa store for the first time I understood that I have to adopt one of her dolls. I waited patiently for the right moment - the first birthday of my daughter. I decided to order two dolls from Okasana, so I can bring a gift to my best friend's daughter too.
Yesterday they finally arrived. I can't stop playing :)) I am fascinated. The dolls breath love and warmness. They have an amazing smell and adorably soft hair. It is a real pleasure to hug them. I ordered girls without cloths, so now I am doing nothing but planning and sewing new stuff for my new toys. The second doll is staying with us too :)
Please meet them: Maya and Oksana.
