These soft dolls are for the youngest little ones. They’re crafted from cotton knit and stuffed with polyfil for ease of washing. Each doll is approximately 5 to 7 inches high, just right for little hands. Equal parts machine and hand-sewing. These are a good size to tuck in the diaper bag and bring out for church, and they’re quiet too!
The monk dolls have flat sleeves and hands, the right hand holding a “prayer rope” embroidered right onto the doll. A tiny red cross is embroidered on the front of the doll’s veil. They are available in four skin tones: brown, tan, peach, and blush (see photos*). The cotton knit for the skin is manufactured especially for dolls and resists pilling. The side seams are triple stitched for durability. The beards are cut from upcycled wool (usually cashmere) sweaters and stitched down onto the face. There is a choice of four colors: brown, grey, oatmeal, and white (see photos).
Several ribbon loops are stitched into the bottom seam of the doll. If you have a color preference (i.e. “primary”, “pastel”, “greens”, etc.) let me know in the comments. Otherwise I will choose for you.
Care: Wash with like colors in warm water, dry on medium heat. You may want to place the doll in a lingerie bag to protect it from other items in the wash.
