We natural hand dyed the velour with Black Beans in our studio, and we love how the fabric looks. We feel that the hand dyed fabric gives the Baby Lovie a subtle, complex color. The doll is buttery soft and great for cuddling. An ideal first doll for little ones. I blush each doll’s cheeks with

Body: 100% organic cotton velour, naturally hand dyed with black beans

Doll ‘s cheeks: natural beeswax, the color will fade over time, but you can easily re-blush by using tinted beeswax like Stockmar.
The doll will be shipped in a muslin bag within a cardboard shipping box
Love & Care instructions: If the Baby Lovie doll gets dirty, it is best only to spot clean the dirty area with a little wool friendly soap. But if your doll needs a full bath, please follow these instructions:
-Add a little wool detergent into luke warm water. Let the doll soak in soapy water for 15 minutes. After the doll is cleaned in the soapy water, you can put it into a bath with clean water briefly to rinse the soap off again.
-Remove the doll from the water and gently squeeze the excess water out of the doll with a dry and clean towel a few times. Do not twist the doll.
-Reshape the head and other parts of the doll if needed.
-Place the doll on a dry towel, and let it air dry. You may use hair dryer ( set cool ) or a fan to speed up the drying process.
-Re-apply cheek coloring by rubbing Beeswax Block Crayons on a separate piece of cloth. Then, rub the colored cloth in a circular motion on the doll’s cheeks.
-Sunshine is a natural antibacterial, so bring the doll outside on a sunny day once a while.
Due to their handmade nature, dolls do not look exactly the same. All la Lovie’s dolls are handcrafted by Irene in her studio in Claremont, CA. It takes between 4 to 5 hours to craft one doll. Each doll is made with love and attention to each detail.
