I am happy to present to you Persephone - one of my latest trio of classic Waldorf dolls.
The name Persephone means "spring" and that is the exact season we are in right now in Australia. Jacarandas are full of their perfect purple-blue blooms. The days are becoming really hot which in Down Under can only mean Christmas is coming.
The doll is done in the traditional way except for her legs - they are bendable and have wooden beads as knees. She is lovingly handmade by me using all the natural materials with lots of tiny details such as a belly button, knees and a little bum. Her legs can be easily moved and positioned in many ways. Arms are free moveable as well.
She is firmly stuffed with 100% white clean Australian wool roving. The “skin” is made of DWE doll making cotton fabric. Her hair is made of lilac mohair and can be brushed.
She is having with her the following clothes:
- linen light pink dress with snap closure at the back and merino felt details at the front;
- merino hand knitted bonnet with shabby chick lace;
- knitted merino undies and tiny socks;
- she will come in a cotton bag with tiny hand embroidery details.

I will be over the moon if my lil girl can end up under some Christmas tree.
The doll can be gently washed in delicate/wool detergent, but spot cleaning is recommended. The hair can be gently brushed.
The doll suited for a child (3+) or an adult collector who can handle her with care, dress her gently and take care of her with love.
He has been made with love and passion in a pet/smoke-free home.
