This Doll is for Anna!

 This Doll is for Anna our dear Waldorf Kindergarten Friend!

This Knecht Ruprecht Companion Doll is individual handmade in Austria with love and great attention to detail. Only the most exquisite materials made from all natural fibers and organic materials where possible are used. 

Its head and body is sculpted in the traditional Waldorf style and its facial features are hand embroidered. Knecht Ruprecht Companion Dolls have a simple bottom, simple hands and feet. Arms and legs are moderately curved, freely movable, allowing natural postures. All Knecht Ruprecht Companion Dolls are soft to the touch and stuffed firmly with 100% organic washed and carded wool.  

The soft 100% cotton doll tricot skin is available in five different shades from Marzipan to Chocolate and is approved in accordance with the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, Class 1 certification. It is made in Switzerland and it is a very high quality fabric which is used and approved since years for the purpose of Waldorf Doll making. This fabric is very resistant and allows a long lifetime of the dolls I make. 

Nearly all wool and felt materials used for my dolls are coming from the local farmers collective Manufaktur Haslach. This Collective supports different rare and endangered species of sheep and organic farming, no pesticides or chemicals are used. The wool is only washed with soda, mild soap and warm water. 

The hair is made of Merino yarn which doesn't fuzz or pill and is perfect for combing and styling to unleash a child’s creativity. The dolls hair is hand stitched on the dolls head in a way that it can be finger combed. Longer hairstyles can be braided. 

This Knecht Ruptrecht Doll is made in a smoke free and pet free environment with love and great attention to detail. Each and every doll I make is unique and handmade by myself.

Martinmas

We had a beautiful Martinmas celebration and Lantern Walk with Campfire and Lantern Songs in Rosas Waldorf Kindergruppe. Martinmas is one of my favorite festivals as bringing light to the darkness with our fragile paper lanterns is such a special event for our children each year.

Look who joined the shooting by accident! Sometimes they are allowed to be outside their chicken fence as soon as the salad and the garden vegetables are harvested. My chickens are very friendly, when I enter the garden a clucking herd of hens is following me all the way through the garden because they think their might be some food for them.
