Striped Ribbon Wands A minimum of 6 feet of swiss made satin ribbon is then attached and each end of the ribbon is sealed, so there is no worry of the ribbon fraying with use. Many people have requested grosgrain or patterned ribbon unfortunately this ribbon does not provide the best play experience and I just can't sell something I don't find fun to play with even if it looks pretty. We have experimented with every type of ribbon & have found that satin is the most satisfying choice for ribbon.
My oldest dd favorite doll was one of these. She had american dolls other waldorf dolls etc... but this one ,this one fired her imagination. Kids even made fun of her but she still loved that baby. It was made of the softest flannel filled with wool so that when held she warmed. She had a beautiful embroidered bonnet and blanket. In the end she was thread barren in spots... we still have her.
