Runi - 13 inch Natural Fiber Art doll by Down Under Waldorfs


AUD $365.00

Don't be fooled by yellow fallen leaves on the pictures, it is still Summer Down Under, hot and scorching at times. I had to abandon my dolls and spend most of the hot days with my human kids at the beach. Poor Runi had been waiting to be finished since last year. 
Ocean had been everything for us this summer, it not only helped us to stay cool but gave me some much-needed inspiration for Runi's clothes. 
Just look at this blue shades colour block maxi skirt! It was the first item I created and what became a starting point for all her clothing. With a jumper, I had to experiment a bit more, before stopping my eyes on the yarn with the most vivid and juicy colour sections, just like Australian flowers. For the finish, I sprinkled it with some beads and feathers for more texture.
Her boots have got the most beautiful shades of the ocean - sapphire, teal, sky, aegean. Once again combining crocheting and knitting gave me such interesting texture.
Little headpiece with some golden thread and oversized pom-pom and off she goes! She will be happy to travel anywhere in the world to meet her soul mate and bring some Summer vibes! <3 <3 <3 ------ <3 <3 <3 Runi is lovingly handmade by me using all the natural materials with tiny details such as a belly button and a little bum. She can sit by herself and her legs are able to bend and move really freely, so the doll can be posed quite well. She is 13 inches tall, has sculpted body and can move her head, thanks to a wire armature deep inside her neck. Her limbs are firmly stuffed with 100% white clean German eco wool. The “skin” made of DWE doll making cotton fabric. Her hair is made of soft and lustrous dark brown curly commercial weft crocheted into the cap and securely attached to the head. Her face and torso are needle felted, so it will retain shape after wash. Her vivid blue eyes embroidered with cotton floss, her cheeks are blushed with beeswax rouge. Under her skirt, she has hand knitted woollen undies. All clothes are removable. The doll can be gently washed in delicate/wool detergent, but spot cleaning is recommended. The hair can be gently styled. Please note: The doll suited for an older child (5+) or an adult collector who can handle her with care, dress her gently and take care of her with love. She has been made with love and passion in a pet/smoke-free home.
