Keira is wearing a golden polka-dotted cotton dress with the cotton band applique, featuring two angels and an underskirt of organic checked cotton fabric with cotton lace edge. She has striped pants of organic cotton jersey and undies beneath.  Her  boots are made with high quality wool felt in off-white and grey, the are decorated with the nostalgic linen buttons on the back. Her cowl with two pompoms and matching hand warmers are knitted of a shaded merino/camel wool blend with the wonderful rich touch. I  embroidered the edges if her hand warmers with pearly seed beads to celebrate that angel like, snowy white and gentle spirit.
Her bag  is crochet with the gorgeous ethically made shaded wool/silk/mohair yarn. The texture of this yarn is so rich and tasty, I tried not to add too much, I left it free of every influence, just pure joy for the fingers to touch and for the eyes to look at. But a little sea shell button on a tiny bowl on the left side just has to be there!

Omo is the little friend and  devoted guardian angel of Keira. She is following Keira everywhere, curiously looking out of her carry bag. Omo is completely sewn by hand using high quality wool felt, doll making jersey and organic clean sheep wool. Omo has angel wings of pure felt an tiny silver bell on a silver thread.  I used fluffy DollyMo mohair for her hair. Her woolen cowl with a tiny silver bell can be put off, her hair can be gentle combed.

Keira has blue eyes, which are carefully hand embroidered.
Her hair are made with the wonderful DollyMo mohair, crocheted into a cap. It is fastened on both sides of her head pony-tails style, it can be  restyled and gently combed. This doll has a neck, ears, a belly button and a sweet bum.
Her head is sculptured of carded clean organic sheep wool in the traditional Waldorf style of European doll making. The body is firmly stuffed with 100% organic pure wool; the “skin” is of high-quality 100% cotton interlock from traditional Swiss manufacture. All seams are double-sewn for more durability. Keira and Omo are now avail­able here and here.

An Angel, Waldorf Inspired

Waldorf felt guardian angel, handmade by Atelier Lavendel is made using organic, all natural materials. Handcrafted in Germany.

During these white days, full with snow and quietness, a little angel has shown itself. Curious. Cheeky. Hopping happily in the fresh snow. Is it then really an angel?, my little one asked. Well, I believe, it is!…

I made it with pure wool felt, organic clean sheep wool, doll making tricot and honey colored DollyMo mohair for its fluffy hair. It is completely sewn by hand, stich by stich, no sewing machine is being used.  I gave him a little magical silver bell, so that little dreamer can always come find the way back to his friends .
This little Angel is now avail­able here and here.

Waldorf inspired ooak dolls by Atelier Lavendel are lovingly handmade with all natural best quality materials. Handmade in Germany.

Meet Dorothy and Jess, two little sisters, two winter children. Boths girls came into this world, when the cold wind was blowing and snow flakes were dancing in the garden. Nevertheless, Dorothy is dreaming about  the Spring. Dreaming about the gentle breeze to sing-song  in her hair, for the sun shining on he cheeks… She has already put on her best dress, all over with blooming  flowers. She is dreaming…  Jess is different. Thik shawl and woollen hat on, rosy checks, well protected from the cold with her little cuddly blanket, she seems pretty happy with the winter and the snow. Well, if I had have such cosy  clothing I surely also would be… ;  )

Her other shawl is made with the finest lace weight mohair. It is amazingly soft and light like a feather. Her  leggings have a nice edge, they are made with organic cotton jersey. Her shoes are made with high quality pure woo felt and decorated with vintage linen buttons.
Her very special heirloom is the genuine pink coral bracelet, she is wearing. Coral is known for its property to ward off bad thoughts and to encourage the general well-being. Tiny 2,5mm genuine coral beads are strung here on a coral red silk cord with the ends left decoratively to fray.  The coral bracelet is to close securely and comfortably  with a  magnetic silver metal closure. This delicate bracelet is 7 inches long, so that it would make a sweet bracelet to a girl or a young woman.

Jess´s clothing is made with cotton velour, she can happily put off her green woollen cowl with a tiny silver bell and her cosy hat of a gorgeous ethically produced wool/silk/mohair blend. I t is decorated   with a green leaf on the top, which is  made with pure wool felt. She possess a tiny blanket (it is bringing her sweet dreams), which she would never want to part with, is oh so wonderful soft.  I have made it for her  with organic undyed alpaca yarn.
The cosy carry bag, where Jess is sleeping most of the time,  is crochet of the same yarn as her hat, it is a beautiful wool/mohair/silk blend. The texture of this yarn is so rich and tasty, I tried not to add too much, I left it free of every influence, just pure joy for the finger to touch and for the eye to look at.
By the way, Dorothy herself has a cosy bag of her very own (not pictured). It is made with cotton fabric and cotton velour and can be used as a storage bag for both friends during the quiet times, or just for gift-giving.

Dorothy and Jess: Clothing Details

Dorothy is waiting for her under-scirt.  Shall it be gray? Shall that be pink?  I believe, that is going to be both of it… Anyway, some clothing are ready by now. Let us see! Shall we start with the boots? Well, they are made of pure wool felt (it is cold here! ), decorated with two vintage cloth buttons. I have chosen off-white and gray colours. It is so wintery.
Rich, soft, warm, a real feast for the eyes to look at and for the hands to touch are the yarns of Jess´s  crochet carry bag and her hat. This is a gorgeous  wool/silk/mohair blend, no poly used.
Dorothy loves scarfs. Or – cowls. The white one she is wearing, is knitted with organic undyed alpaca wool. Love the pompoms.
The lilac cowl I made for Dorothy, after thick white snow flakes started to cover all the plants in our garden again. I made it with finest lace weight mohair on silk. Soft, silky, light as a feather. And some pallietts too to shine up the day.
Dorothy´s very special heirloom is her genuine pink coral bracelet. Coral is known for its property to ward off bad thoughts and to encourage the general well-being. Tiny 2,5mm genuine coral beads are strung here on a coral red silk cord with the ends left decoratively to fray.  This coral bracelet is to close securely and comfortably  with magnetic silver metal closure. It  is 7 inches long, so that it would make a sweet bracelet to a girl or a young woman.
