My classic cloth dolls are only available on a custom order basis, except from Kiki in the Meadow Dolls which I put every now and then in my webshop as a ready-to-go doll for your child.
I make 1-2 classic cloth dolls (20"/ 23") at a maximum per month, often even less because each doll takes me several days to finish. Due to the very small number of dolls per year, I choose my customers wisely. A personal and inspiring dialogue with each of my customers is important to me and I enjoy the creative journey I take together with the families I am working for. Their stories and their personal motives to give one of my dolls a new loving home is what nourishes my fantasy. If you are interested in a custom doll, you are welcome to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please add a little info about yourself and why you think a Fröken Skicklig doll would be the perfect match for your child or yourself.

Please note: The recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country. Orders shipped outside of Sweden/ the European Union may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches the recipient's country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient. I have no control over these charges and can't predict what they may be.

What kinds of material do you use for your dolls? Each Fröken Skicklig Doll is made of cotton interlock and stuffed with organic sheep wool, has an embroidered face and a wig crocheted of soft mohair yarn. All my doll´s seams are sewn with sturdy nylbond that meets industrial requirements. I work with natural material of high quality only, such as wool, silk and cotton, preferably organic/ GOTS certified. Occasionally, I re-use vintage fabric and haberdashery. All fabrics are pre-washed. My dolls meet the strict EU safety standards for toys (EN 71) and are subject to a continuing quality control.
Who makes the doll bodies, clothes and wigs? Do you have employees?
Even though I´d love to have little fairies doing some magic in my studio while I am asleep, I have no employees or people working for me. Every part of a Fröken Skicklig doll is made by me. I stuff each of my doll bodies, I crochet every wig, all the clothes are made by me and entirely based on my own design and patterns.
Care instructions for cloth dolls:
Fröken Skicklig dolls can be washed by hand in luke-warm water with wool/ silk detergents. Please do not use tumbler or washing machine. Do not wring out or rub your doll while washing, but let it soak in and rinse gently. Wrapped in a towel and close to a heating your doll will need about three days to get dry again. Smaller stains can easily be removed with a damp cloth.
Traces of time and traces of play are natural. The hair will look a bit tousled and you might see a few stains here. Chocolate mouths and curious little fingers leave traces, and that is the nature of joyful play. A loved doll will always look like a loved doll, so take these traces as a beautiful gift and as a proof for lovely memories.
Every of my dolls comes with a little care kit, containing a piece of beeswax crayon and a soft cloth for rosy cheeks, with sturdy nylbond sewing thread and matching embroidery floss. Like any other toy, a handmade doll needs to be checked by you from time to time for safety reasons.
