Female doll with black and white scarf on her head partially covering short synthetic white hair. The doll is wearing a long-sleeved ankle-length black and white checked cotton dress with a black and white cotton shawl. The face and hands of the doll are made from an orange colored wool felt. Underneath the clothing, the body is covered with white felt. She also wears a blue apron with white stitching. She is holding a piece of white felt with a knitting needle made from a straight pin. She has a purple slip, with lace edged white pantaloons, white socks, and abarkak (leather shoes with laces that go up the calf) with black laces. Her facial features, eyebrows, eyes with pupils, and a red mouth, are hand stitched. There is a black string attached in a loop at the top of the head scarf, indicating the possibility that this was an ornament for a Christmas tree. The doll is not flexible, but has a distinct armature that holds the arms and legs in a specific pose.
