For Fanny

This Knecht Ruprecht Cuddle Doll Baby is very soft and cuddly and individual handmade in Austria with love and great attention to detail. Only the most exquisite materials made from all natural fibers and organic materials are used. I used GOTS certified organic cotton Nicki Velour and GOTS certified organic cotton embroidery thread.

Its head is sculpted in the traditional Waldorf style and its facial features are hand embroidered. Its soft body and cap is  made of cotton velvet. All Knecht Ruprecht Cuddle Doll Babies are soft to the touch and stuffed with 100% organic washed and carded wool.  

The soft 100% cotton doll tricot skin 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. 

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.
