Vaianu 12" (30 cm)

Vaianu is my second black doll. I enjoyed making the first one so much that I immediately had to make another one afterwards, and there was a marked interest among my customers, too. Even though this short hair that my black dolls have might look simple, it is actually very challenging to make.
Vaianu is made of fully natural fibers. Her head, body, arms and legs are needle-felted. In her creation clean, carded wool has been used as a filling and high quality cotton jersey was used to make her skin. There is a wire between the torso and head. She is button-jointed (at the shoulders and hips), which makes them flexible. The doll has hair made from sheep locks discreetly hand-sewn to her head.
