– shoes and scarf: Novita Alpaca Wool (50% alpaca, 50% wool; 50g [1.75 oz] = 100 m [109.4 yds] in Black and light Blue.

You may use any yarn of similar yarn weight with a comparable fiber content. Softer yarns are better suitable. Using yarn of a different yarn weight than that of the pictured sample doll is also perfectly acceptable, but will affect the size of the finished doll. The yarn used for the hair should be thick and voluminous – thinner yarn is possible, too, but more fiddly to handle.
