Stretchy 100% cotton knit gauze tubing and the more supportive 100% cotton knit stockinette ~ for stuffing and creating the inner form of the head of a Waldorf doll. Size indicates the width. Possible slight variations among rolls but the stretch is the same. Our stockinette may appear to be looser than before but when tested is not any stretchier than what we have always carried.
Buying by the roll is an economical option for groups, classes and professional doll makers.
General size recommendations given. Sizes vary depending upon pattern and designer. Please consult your pattern before purchasing!

I love the fact that there is very little waste with this giant roll of head tubing, and it does not need to be doubled. The shipping was very fast. The only negative thing was that my order said it couldn't be shipped, but I submitted it anyhow. I followed the instruction that said contact the company if you got this message and they did not return with an answer, but then the package arrived the next day. I will order from them again in a heartbeat.
A Child's Dream is surely one of the best doll-making resources on the planet. I love that I can buy this inner head tubing by the roll! The service is also exceptional and the staff is fabulous! I always list A Child's Dream as a resource in my doll-making classes.
I have been a Waldorf doll maker for 16 years. A Child's Dream is the *only* source for me for inner head gauze tubing. It is high quality tubing which does not need to be doubled and the price is excellent. I buy gauze tubing by the roll. A Child's Dream is recommended to my students as the go-to source for all their doll making needs.
I used to be able to purchase this item from another company (owner retired). So, I'm so glad to have found this at A Child's Dream Come True. I use it for my own dolls that I sell, my kits and for my doll making workshops.
It is top quality--only the best--for the best looking dolls, and to pass it on to others in my workshops! It is also very reasonably priced.
