Elsie is 18 inches tall and is a soft-bodied vinyl German doll. She has bright blue sleeping eyes and washable hair and comes dressed as shown in her traditional blue and red dirndl with white apron. Elsie’s hair is made from kanekalon which gives a more realistic look. Her long blonde hair is braided and finished with red ribbons on the ends. She is wearing black shoes with white socks and comes neatly displayed in a window box suitable for storage.
Rooted hair vs. Kanekalon Wig:
Rooted hair is stitched directly into the vinyl head of the doll. The fibers are sewn in from the outside and interlocked on the inside. Rooted hair is very durable and suited best for younger children.
Wigs that are made from kanekalon resemble the natural appearance of human hair. This is because the fibers are mixed in several similar colors and are also thinner than the fibers in rooted hair. Aside from this, because of the finer texture of the hair, it is easier to create more complex hair styles. The hair fibers are are then sewn into a fabric cap and then the cap is glued firmly onto the doll’s head. Collectors usually prefer the natural appearance of the kanekalon wigs.
