Zoe is converting part of the stream bank into a rock garden. It is slimy work, she says, but somebody's got to do it. Possibly. Yesterday she saw two beautiful orange newts.
She is made of brown organic cotton fleece, with a natural organic fleece face and tail. Her ears are lined with pink and white striped cotton. She measures 16" from ear to toe. She is stuffed with washable polyfill. Her eyes and nose are hand-stitched with cotton embroidery floss.
We recommend spot cleaning, or hand wash cool and air dry.
Jane Van Cleef started Hazel Village in 2010 with her own two hands. She set out to make the toys she would have wanted as a child: soft and cute, with a rigorous commitment to the spirit of play. You'll never see a sewn-on doll shoe or a button that doesn't work because that would mean admitting the animals aren't real. So Hazel Village makes real organic cotton woodland creatures and dolls, and real doll clothes that everyone can share, to inspire hours of immersive, low-tech play.
At the Hazel Village workshop in Brooklyn, Jane does her best to follow a good example of the animals. Hazel Village and the animals have the same core values: they are resourceful, clever, jolly, diligent, and gentle.
