Introducing... The Wood Folk!
We’re so excited for you to meet our little forest friends! These guys are our hand made peg pals, made from locally salvaged timber and the most beautiful locally hand dyed silk cloaks. They are each truly unique thanks to the natural beauty of the branches they’re crafted from.
Perfect for Waldorf Colour of the Day Dolls, we’ve created a beautiful little set with a Wood Folk for each of the Waldorf day colours with matching small wooden gem and stepping stone, engraved with the day of the week.
When not in use for Colour of the day, they are also great for small world play, season dolls, colour matching, sorting, role play... So many play adventures they could join, and they are just so dang cute!
Each Wood Folk is made from solid timber, cut from salvaged or fallen branches and is individually sanded on all edges for a beautiful, soft, tactile experience.
We have chosen to use soft, lightweight silk instead of traditional felt, as we as we wanted our little bush buddies to dress appropriately in our warm Australian climate! The silk has been hand torn to leave soft raw edges that drape and move fluidly. Some fraying is normal and expected after good use. We suggest trimming any loose threads and packing them away after each play to ensure tiny fingers don’t get caught in threads when left unattended.
The small wooden gem is made from Paulownia wood and is hand dyed and sealed with a coconut/beeswax finish.
As with all of our products, we hope to inspire a connection to nature through play, using sustainable resources.
The Wood Folk are handmade in Byron Bay, from locally and ethically sourced, raw natural materials. As such, each is unique and vary slightly in size and colour. This isn’t seen as a defect, but a testament to the beauty and variety found in nature.
Wood Folk are approx. 95mm tall and have a diameter of approx 35mm.
stepping stones approx. 75-85mm and 10mm thick
Gems approx 50mm x 40mm
NOT suitable for children under 3 years of age or older children who chew/mouth toys. To be used under adult supervision.
