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: Gracie Cat in "Sweet Rose" Dress and Bonnet
Material: Organic cotton fleece
If you ask Gracie what her favorite activity is, she will tell you: fishing. She has loved it ever since she was a kitten. She says on a good afternoon, she can catch a dozen minnows. When she has enough, all of the animals have a fish fry! Although some of them eat only salad. Gracie says that is fine; more fish for her.
Gracie is about 14″ tall. She is made of organic cotton fleece, mostly gray but with natural-colored details on her face and tummy. Her ears are lined with cotton plaid. Her face is hand-stitched with cotton embroidery thread and she's stuffed with polyfill. If she gets dirty she can be hand washed in cool water and air dried.
Gracie's dress is made from a soft Liberty of London combed cotton, with a cute colorful "sweet rose" print.
Gracie will travel to you in a reusable cotton bag, perfumed with a lavender and mint sachet.
