Item details

This listing is for 2 meter (78.75”) of Tubing

(See other listings for 2m, 5m or 10m pieces)

Gauze knit stockinette tubing is used to make the inner head for Waldorf, Waldorf-inspired and Natural Cloth Art Dolls.

100% cotton - made in Canada.

Use a double layer of tubing for doll sizes larger than 10” or when needle felting overtop of the gauze.

When determining which size to use, remember that a doll with a proportionately larger head will need wider tubing. If you plan to needle felt features on top of the stockinette, you might want to use a smaller size, if you plan to put the stockinette over needle felted feature to smooth out the felting, use a slightly larger size.

How to choose the right width stockinette:

5/8” (1.58cm) - use for pocket dolls 2” - 4” (5 - 10cm) Stretched total circumference of tubing = 3.15” (8cm)

7/8” (2.2cm) - use for larger pocket dolls - 6” - 8” (15 - 20cm) Stretched total circumference of tubing = 4.33” (11cm)

1 1/8” (2.86cm) - use for dolls 7” - 10” (17 - 25cm) Stretched total circumference of tubing = 6.3” (16cm)

1 1//2” (3.8cm) - use for dolls 10” - 16” (25 - 40cm) Stretched total circumference of tubing = 11” (28cm)

2 5/8” (6.6cm) - use for dolls 14” - 23” (35 - 60cm) Stretched total circumference of tubing = 15.75” (40cm)

(Please note that the un-stretched width may vary slightly for each package - however, the stretched width remains the same)

Additional policies

I do very limited custom orders; I will place a spot for a custom doll in my shop when I am able to work on them. Please check my blog for an announcement.

Pricing of all Olive Sparrow Goods is based on sustainability for both the artist and the receiver of the item. Quality work is my prime objective, not volume of merchandise. I can imagine nothing more beautiful than a child building a bond with an Olive Sparrow Child that will last through hours and hours of play and will still engage that little human child as an adult. This kind of workman ship takes a lot of time and fine, detailed work, and being produced in Canada must be able to sustain an artists’ life here.

Your Olive Sparrow Child is guaranteed against defects in the workmanship and materials for 1 year. Please contact the Olive Sparrow at should you have any concerns.

We also offer doll doctor services, please contact me for information.

Olive Sparrow Child Care instructions:
Your child will want to take his/her doll along on many adventures and you might be fearful that it will loose its clean appearance. This does happen, however it is also an adult concern, not one of the child. If you see it necessary, try to do a spot removal before giving it a whole bath. Long hair should be braided before washing, to keep it from matting. When you submerge the doll into water, it will take many days to dry. Please mention that to your child, as they might miss their friend.

It is always preferable to spot clean only with a damp towel, with none or very little mild low-suds soap, DO NOT RUB. In a true emergency, partial immersion in mildly soapy, cool water should help, no agitation, and lie flat and face-up on a towel to dry.

To renew the dolls face add new blush from time to time. (Each doll is shipped with a bit of blush on a piece of linen). To make your own doll-blush, take a scrap of cloth and rub it with a red, pink and brownish crayon and then rub the cloth on the cheeks. It will look a little dark at first, but after a day or two it will soften.
