Miss Flora Fox likes ballet and working on whittling projects. Recently she finished carving a salad bowl.
She is made of orange organic cotton fleece with a brushed flannel texture, and stuffed with washable polyfill. Her nose and the tip of her tail are white, and her ears are lined with striped pink cotton. She is 15" from ear to toe. Her eyes and nose are hand-embroidered with cotton thread. If necessary, you can hand-wash Flora.
Flora's jumper is made of soft strawberry red organic cotton. It has a little pink chevron detail on the front. Like all Hazel Village clothes, Flora's dress is removable so the animals can share and trade.
Flora will travel to you in a reusable cotton bag with a lavender and mint sachet tucked inside. She will NOT come with a whittling knife, much to her dismay. I told her that when she arrives at her new home, maybe you can work something out.
HOW CAN I WASH THE ANIMALS?
If your Hazel Village friend gets a little grubby, we recommend the following: First, try spot cleaning with a sponge. If that's not enough, try hand washing in hot soapy water. Rinse well, squeeze all the water out, and air dry. If necessary, you can wash your animal in the machine on the most gentle cycle. We suggest dressing it in one of our rompers, to protect their necks and extremities, then placing it in a delicates bag before it takes the plunge. You can machine dry it on low, but be careful - the stuffing may clump. Wool friends can only be washed by hand.
We stuff the regular dolls and animals with polyfill, which is clean and hypoallergenic, and stays springy for a long time even if washed in hot water. It is naturally fire-retardant, so it doesn't need to be treated with chemicals to comply with toy safety law. Custom toys made in our Brooklyn workshop can be stuffed with either wool or polyfill.
We work with an organic-certified, fair labor factory in Noida, India for our regular line. We got to spend some time with the factory owner this summer, and we were really impressed by his commitment to quality work and fair treatment of the factory workers. Monograms, limited editions, all our kids' clothes, and most doll clothes are made in Brooklyn.
