Apollo has been lovingly created as part of the ‘Root & Bloom’ Summer Series. This collection of dolls have been designed to embody the spirit of Summer.

Apollo’s body is made from pure linen which has been naturally bundle dyed using a combination of madder root and marigold petals. His raw-edge linen scarf has been dyed with madder root.

These Waldorf inspired dolls have been left intentionally simple to encourage and stimulate a child’s imagination, the doll’s simple expression can easily reflect the child’s mood and creativity, allowing for full use of their imagination.

Only natural materials have been used, as these natural materials are gentle on the senses and they nourish a connection to the natural world for the developing child, and a sense of belonging.

Materials include Linen, Cotton, New Zealand sheep’s wool (stuffing) and Alpaca Boucle yarn (Hair).

Apollo measures approximately 35cm (to the top of his head, measurement does not include hat).

*Hat and scarf are not removable.

Caring for your naturally dyed doll

Please do not put your doll in the washing machine. You can spot clean any small marks, or hand-wash as necessary with a gentle, PH-neutral wool detergent. Lie flat to dry in a well ventilated area in the shade.

Botanically dyed textiles, like all fabrics, will fade over time if left in direct sunlight. Natural dyes are sensitive to citric acids (found in lemons, grapefruit, oranges, tomatoes etc) which will ‘bleach’ the fibres.

Please note actual colours may vary. It’s important to note that they may look different on a real product than what you see on your computer monitor. This is due to the fact that every computer monitor has a different capability to display colours and that everyone sees these colours differently.We try to edit our photos to show the products as life-like as possible, but please understand the actual colour may vary slightly from your monitor.
