Fern Doll in Feather Dress and Bonnet- Hazel Village

Hazel Village

Regular price $ 52.00

FERN

In the summertime when flowers bloom in the meadow, Fern traipses there with her gathering basket and her flower press. She says she is trying to find every kind of flower that grows there. She also has a field guide with the names of the flowers. Her favorite is a tiny purple flower with a minty smell. It has many names, including ground ivy, catsfoot, and run-away-robin.

Fern is made of organic cotton jersey. She is 14 inches tall, sized to share clothes with all the other Hazel Village animals. Her face and toes are hand embroidered with cotton thread. Her cheeks are a little bit pink. She's stuffed with washable poly fill.

Fern comes wearing a mist blue dress with a tiny scrap of our custom feather print on the yoke, and a black bonnet with a blue ribbon tassel. Both the dress and the bonnet are made from organic cotton. Fern also comes with organic cotton underwear.

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.

WHAT ARE THEY STUFFED WITH?

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.

WHERE ARE THEY MADE?

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.

ARE THEY SAFE FOR BABIES?

The animals are suitable for all ages, because their faces are embroidered and they are soft. But if you leave an animal with a very young child, please remove any loose doll clothes (socks, scarves, hats, etc) that the baby could rip off and eat
