Rafael - 16 inch Natural Fiber Art Doll by Down Under Waldorfs


AUD $530.00


Do you believe in fairies?

I do. In fact, Australia is the best place to meet fairies even in Autumn.

The boy I am going to introduce you is Rafael. Together we went on an adventure – for him it was to find out whether we still have fairies in Australian gardens and for me it was a bit different one – to find some courage to take photos outside in nature.

To find a fairy you need to know their favourite places and I knew just the right one – Rose garden. Honestly, I do not remember visiting rose gardens in this season, to my surprise we still have plenty of rose blooms.

Rafael was so happy to see the garden for the first time in his doll life. He has been very curious about fairies and we talked all the way about possible spots in the garden to see them. We walked slowly and found ourselves in the farthest corner with moss and fallen leaves on the path. I said to him quietly that this must be it, we need to seat, wait and the most importantly believe in magic. It was not long until the fairy appeared landing right behind Rafael.

To our surprise she was very friendly, chatty and get well with Rafael instantly, her name is Raisie.


We continued our walk through the garden together; she showed us the prettiest roses and the best views. And for me, I just hope that I was not looking crazy with these two ;)



Let me say more about this blonde curly boy and his new friend. His name is Rafael, he is 16 inch tall Natural Fiber Art doll.


Rafael is lovingly handmade by me using all the natural materials with lots of tiny details such as ears, a belly button and a little bum. He can sit by himself and stand with support. Arms and legs can bend and are free moveable, so he can pose with ease.  
His limbs are firmly stuffed with 100% white clean Australian eco wool using both rolling and tear stuffing technic. The “skin” is made of DWE cotton originated from Switzerland. His hair is made of beautiful curly blonde
commercial weft crocheted into the cap and securely attached to his head. You can re-style his hair in many ways.
His face and torso is needle felted, so it will retain shape after wash. His deep brown eyes and wheat colour eyebrows embroidered with cotton floss, his cheeks are blushed with beeswax rouge.
Rafael is approximately 16 inch tall (about 40.5 cm); he is having with him the following clothes:
Bright and cheerful cotton jersey stripy tee with long sleeves and snap closure at the back; cotton jersey vest with kangaroo pocket; charcoal fine corduroy pants with ribbing details, buttons and leather trims; stripy cotton jersey boxers and boat shoes crocheted from 100% wool yarn.

Raisie will be happy to travel with Rafael. She is wool baby as well, except for her wings and wire inside of her.


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 him with care, dress him gently and take care of him with love.

He has been made with love and passion in a pet/smoke free home.
