When the weather is warm, Ada loves to go wading in the stream. She admires the way the water looks as it flows over rocks in the shallow part, and the mysteries of the murky depths where she might see a turtle. When her legs get too cold, she sits on the stream bank and makes little braided contraptions from wild grasses.
Ada is made of organic cotton jersey, and stuffed with washable polyfill. She is 14 inches tall, the same size as all the other Hazel Village dolls and animals, so she can share clothes with them. Ada's face and toes are hand embroidered with cotton thread. Her pigtails are made of black organic cotton fleece fabric, and they are fun to braid and tie with ribbons.
Ada comes wearing a white linen dress. She can share and trade clothes with the other Hazel Village friends, because they are all the same size. She also comes with organic cotton underwear.
You can hand wash Ada and her clothes as necessary. She will come to you in a reusable cloth bag, perfumed with a lavender and mint sachet.

Hazel Village started in 2010 as a creative project by maker and designer Jan Van Cleef. One day she made a toy that she would have liked as a child out of scraps in the front room of her apartment in Brooklyn. She started making more for friends and started listing her dolls on Etsy, each with its own little outfit and back story. In the years since, she has expanded her business by finding responsible makers and never sacrificing 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.
