Are the doll clothes washable?
Yes. Officially we recommend washing all clothing by hand using a gentle soap such as Woolite. Please note that all fabrics and trim are pre-washed before they are cut and sewn into garments. This greatly reduces shrinking, bleeding and twisting in the wash.
Some customers report good results with the gentle cycle of their washing machines. For the most part I have had good results with this method as well. However washing machines differ drastically and what works in my machine may not work in yours. For best results wash articles by hand. If you choose to use your washing machine I cannot guarantee results.
What kind of fasteners do you use?
Play cloths from our Traditional Line fasten with securely sewn velcro. This makes it easy for younger children to play dress-up with their dolls. Our Collector's Line primarlily fastens with metal snaps, firmly applied with fine hand-stitches. Depending on shape and design details, some garments make use of hand applied hooks and eyes or buttons and machine-stitched buttonholes. All fasteners are carefully fitted to enhance the hang or fit of the garment.
