Kit's Christmas Outfit is made from polyester. That's a very good reason why the Scotty Dog pin is actually a magnet - if you put holes through the polyester, they're there for good. Plus, sharp pointy things aren't very nice for kids. Or for me.
I actually doubted the CS woman who told me the dress is polyester when I called to ask about items with wool! I thought "no way, it looks like a nice thick cotton." Well, it is. I was very disappointed in the texture and feel when I got it today (nice eBay buy - only $10).
Currently, the dress is on a Laura Ashley doll I picked up at the Salvation Army the other day, and it doesn't fit her quite right, so I'm going to wait until I get it on an actual AG before I make a final decision. As it is, I think I'm going to duplicate it in a soft cotton and send the polyester to someone who wants it more.
The hair ribbon came attached to a barrette, which was nice. I'm not sure if that's because of my seller, or if it's from AG, but it definitely keeps the bow looking fresh!
