Owen Fox Doll
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?
Your Owen will travel to you in a reusable cotton bag. It has a lavender and mint sachet inside, which is supposed to be soothing, but again, it's a losing battle. If and when he gets scuffed or grimy, he can be hand-washed and he will air dry.

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.
