Sophie is a Waldorf inspired doll. She is about 14 inches tall.
She is made from a special cotton jersey designed for dollmakers (swiss cotton with eco-tex label).
It is firmly stuffed with clean, carded sheepswool, but soft enough for hugging.
Her head is sculptured in the traditional Waldorf style. Sophie's facial features (her eyes and lips) are embroidered with floss. In her face you can notice a tiny tip of the nose, and a few freckles embroidered with floss.
For her medium-length hair I chose a light brown woolen yarn with a hint of ginger and mixed it with mohair in a nearing colour. I made her hair by applying strand by strand to the embroidered , with the same yarn, head. It is very strong. Her hairstyle can be easily changed, and it needs to be finger styled. Sophie's cheeks and nose are coloured with wax crayon.
Because she is made of sheepswool, Sophie is soft, warm and nice to the touch. It is very pleasing to hold her and cuddle. She smells of home and gives her little friend a sense of security.
Sophie comes with a complete outfit of clothing:
two pairs of underwear, a colourful dress, green trousers, red bootees, a white and green hat (little hood), a red shawl, a green hair band and two ribbons to tie her hair.
In additon Sophie has a white nightdress and 3-pieces bedding set (a duvet, a pillow filled with sheepswool and a pillow case).
The doll herself and all her clothes including the bedding set are made from natural materials: her underwear, dress, trousers and a nighgtdress from cotton; bootees and her shawl from wool, and her hood from soft mohair.
Sophie is suitable for children aged 3 and more.
