About the monkeys: All are handmade by me from vintage (new old stock) USA-made red heel socks. Cotton rag stuffed for nice weight and a genuine old doll feeling. Limbs and tails are polyfil. Pom poms are a mix of yarns/ felted wool. Outfits are all custom made to measure without a pattern. All vintage trims/ buttons/ fabric and some repro cotton. Made with love head to tail! They don't come around often, so enjoy!
