Hazel Village handcrafts heirloom quality stuff animals responsibly & at a reasonable price. Jane Van Cleef, the creative mind behind the line, loves making quality toys that can stay with children as they grow up - first as soft, snuggly friends, then as companions for storytelling and dress-up play, as the inspiration for craft projects (kid-made clothes, furniture, etc. for the animals), and eventually as treasured keepsakes.
Character: Catalina Mouse in Hedgerow Skirt and Bonnet
Material: Organic cotton jersey
Sometimes the other animals ask Catalina, doesn't that bonnet constrict your ears? She says, thank you for asking but in fact no, it is cozy and it stretches. Plus, when she finds nice acorns she can use her bonnet as a bag.
Catalina Mouse is made of gray organic cotton fleece, and stuffed with washable polyfill. Her ears are lined with cotton oxford shirting. Her eyes and nose are hand-stitched with cotton embroidery floss. She measures 14 inches, not counting her ears and tail. You can hand-wash her in warm water, and she will air dry.
Catalina Mouse comes wearing a red organic cotton bonnet, and an elastic-waist skirt made of multi-colored cotton lawn from Liberty of London. Like all Hazel Village animal clothes, Catalina's skirt and bonnet are removable so the animals can share and trade!
Catalina will travel to you in a reusable cotton bag, with a lavender and mint sachet tucked inside. She is excited for the journey because in general she likes burrows, and she fits in the shipping carton perfectly.
If you like, we can personalize your Catalina Mouse with a hand-stitched monogram!
