Harriet - 31cm Natural Fiber Art Doll


CAD $325.00


This girl! oh.. this girl. Isn't she just the sweetest? She told me the other day, that one day, she wanted to see a really, really tall mountain -- and then climb it. She also said that to start with, she would be happy with a hill. Anything where she can have a view of the surrounding landscape. She scolded me for settling in a place where the only vantage point can be had from a man-made tower, or a highway overpass after growing up in a country of mountains. I did take here to see the gorgeous view over on Broadview Avenue -- we even watched the sunset. Although Harriet liked it, she wants more... Do you think you have a view you would like to show her? 


Harriet also loves playing with her scarf -- because it has a loop at the end and a knitted toggle, it can be worn in many different ways -- a headband, a belt, a cowl. It is knit from premium 100% wool and matches her green wet-felted shoes perfectly. 


At 31cm (just shy of 12”), she is the perfect take-along doll. 



A word about her felted coat -- Harriet's coat is wet-felted and embroidered with free-hand machine embroidery. The hood has a large opening on top so that she can pull her long curly hair through and let it drape around her face, instead of trying to squeeze it in. Then there are the big pockets! Large enough that she can warm her hands in them.  The coat is wet-felted from premium extra fine 18micron merino wool fibre. 


Her boots are wet-felted from swiss mountain sheep wool -- she wanted them a solid colour so that the coat won't have competition. they are superwarm, especially, since she wears off-white cashmere socks with them.

Harriet is a Waldorf-inspired natural cloth doll created from my own pattern. She is very firmly stuffed and feels wonderful when held. She can sit on her own and her limbs move freely, giving her a supreme play value (and lets her put his arms around your neck to hug you back). All her clothes are made by me, and the locks are also processed from raw fibre and dyed in my studio. 


Harriet is created as a doll for an older child -- there are small buttons on the coat, the rest of the clothes have no small parts and are suitable even for a younger child. She wears underwear, socks, felted boots, an upcycled wool dress, a long-sleeved cotton tunic, and a hooded, wet-felted, embroidered wool coat that closes with 3 buttons and has an opening in the hood for her locks to come through.
