Custom-made Doll Options
If you are interested in ordering your very own custom-made Middle Earth character doll, then you've come to the right page. We offer three different styles of handmade wool dolls, available in your choice of hero characters (no orcs or bad guys, please). If you don't see the character you are looking for, that doesn't mean that we can't make it for you. We enjoy making a wide variety of Middle Earth heroes but haven't yet done them all.
Each type of doll is shown below, along with a description and photos. All dolls are made as custom orders, so each description states the amount of time we need to make your doll after you've placed your order. Your doll will look similar to those shown in the photos, but there will always be slight variations in design and detail, since each doll is handmade and unique.
Minikins: 4" Wire-Wrapped Dolls
This is a small wire-wrapped doll with handsewn wool-rayon felt clothes. The head and face are needle-felted Merino roving, with wool or mohair used for the hair (depending on the character).
Each of our Minikins is handcrafted, one at a time, with hundreds of tiny stitches. There will always be slight variations in design and detail. You will receive a CUSTOM ORDER doll similar to the Minikin of your choice, as seen in the photos above. PLEASE ALLOW THREE WEEKS FOR US TO MAKE YOUR DOLL.
1:12 Scale: 6" Needle-Felted Dolls
These 6" wool dolls are one of our most popular items. They're entirely needle-felted from Merino wool (with leather and metal accessories, when appropriate to the character) and designed to fit into dollhouses or dioramas using 1:12 Scale objects. They come on a small wooden stand, and nothing is removable -- the doll is a one-piece and non-poseable item.
Each of our 1:12 Needle-Felted Dollhouse Dolls is handcrafted, one at a time, solidly needle-felted with wool roving. For more information about the making of my needle-felted dolls, please read this page. Due to the handmade nature of these pieces, there will always be slight variations in design and detail. PLEASE ALLOW EIGHT TO TEN WEEKS FOR ME TO MAKE YOUR DOLL.
Approx. 9" Needle-Felted Art Doll
This is the largest and most detailed type of doll that we offer (certainly the Cadillac of felted Art Dolls). They are needle-felted with 100% wool and other natural fibers. No patterns, no forms, no wires — just solid wool that's been sculpted in the round. Each doll stands approximately 9" tall (height varies slightly by character) and is a one-piece and non-poseable item.
If you are interested in ordering your own custom-made needle-felted doll, please contact me via e-mail. Your doll will look similar to those shown above but not exactly the same. Each Felted Doll is unique. It's the charm of needle-felting, and Tolkien's Middle Earth characters lend themselves very nicely to this fiber art.
