Face is covered with clay for a textured feel, and distressed with ink and stitched. Hair is made with acrylic yarn and glued into place. This yarn has a tendency to shed, so it shouldn't be handled often. Caution: Clay face may crack or chip if picked at or played with. **Our dolls are not intended for young children. Wondering why?
