Owen loves to go to his secret tree house and practice his dance moves. He says he's such a nimble dancer because he has a low center of gravity. But the other animals, who have similarly low centers of gravity, say he just has a lot of energy.
He is made of orange organic cotton fleece, with white fleece on his nose and tail. He measures about 15 inches, ear to toe. He is stuffed with washable fiberfill. His eyes, nose, and whiskers are hand embroidered with cotton thread. His ear linings are gray striped cotton shirting.
Owen's dapper tailcoat is made of dark green organic cotton jersey. It has a silver snap closure. It's quite classy really. And it leaves the perfect space for his tail. Like all the Hazel Village animal clothes, it is removable if the animals want to try new outfits. Or get overheated from vigorous dancing. Which begs the question: why is this fuzzy fox wearing clothes at all?
Hazel Village was started in 2010 by Jane Van Cleef. She always loved making things, and found inspiration for Hazel village in what she loved growing up. Annicke Mouse was the first Hazel Village doll, and after making a few more woodland friends, the world of Hazel Village became clear to her.
In the four years since Hazel Village started, they've expanded their ability to produce the animals responsibly, striving for heirloom quality at a reasonable price.
Hazel Village is named after the American Hazelnut tree: a source of delicious nuts, magical divining rods, useful twigs for basketry, and food for caterpillars.
