Nell Doll - White Linen Dress
Whenever Nell sees a forest path winding through the trees, she tries to scamper along it. She says, "My heart yearns to see what comes next." What a pretty turn of phrase, Nell! She says the best thing she ever saw on a forest path was a mommy and baby deer.
Nell is made of organic cotton jersey. She is sized to share clothes with all the other Hazel Village animals. Her face and toes are hand embroidered with cotton thread. Her cheeks are a little bit pink.

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.
