As twilight falls on Hazel Village and the crickets of evening begin to chirp, the animal friends meet Phoebe Fawn in the field for orchestra practice. Phoebe is the Village Orchestra conductor and concert master. She says her instrument is the pan flute, which never goes flat, and which an industrious animal can play even if she has hooves.
Phoebe is made of organic cotton fleece in a lovely shade of caramel brown. She measures 14" tall. Her hooves are made of dark brown organic cotton knit, and her tail is natural organic fleece. Her spots are printed with a technique that keeps the fabric's natural softness, and her face is hand embroidered with cotton thread. She is stuffed with washable polyfill.
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.
