Maker's statement

The bodies are knitted feet first ending with the top of the head. They are made using seamless knitting technology, falling from the machine fully knitted. The only finishing necessary is to remove the waste yarn from the toes (sock ends), fingertips (mitten ends) and thumbs and to sew in the ends of yarn at the toes, fingertips, thumbs and top of head.
