This is a one-of-a-kind Orthodox monk Waldorf-style doll. His black cassock and skufia are stitched down and not designed to be removed. There are no small parts and he is made entirely with 100% cotton knit, and wool. This makes this doll appropriate for babies and toddlers although older children would enjoy him as well.
His head and body are constructed in the Waldorf-style (filled and sculpted with tightly wound wool). The face and hands are made of blush-colored cotton knit with embroidered features and his body is made of black cotton knit.
His skufia is made of the same black knit and has a small cross embroidered in red on the front. His cassock is made of the same fabric. It is free from the hem to the neck and is tightly sewn to the body at the neck and arm openings. A black felt monastic “belt” is securely stitched in place. A wool yarn knotted “prayer rope” is sewn to his right wrist.
I recommend spot cleaning the doll itself as needed, and hand-washing if necessary. Use cool water and do not wring or scrub. There are several good sites online giving explicit directions for cleaning Waldorf dolls and I recommend consulting them if you feel you need to wash him.
Dimensions: 9.5 inches tall
