We suspect the lovely little (she's only 2 foot 2) dark haired doll pictured in the construction site is supervising, but we have recently heard she has started flying second seat with a pilot friend, a real pilot. Apparently the air traffic controllers are beginning to wonder about the lovely and well spoken voice now coming over the airplane radio communication system. The pilot they know but who is this new voice?
Two of our Intrix Dolls, Elizabeth Anne and Jenny Marie, may usually be found busily engaged in their latest effort to help. Sometimes little things inside, like straightening out their Mistress Sarah's vanity drawers or surprising her with cookies when she comes home. Other times it may be a most uncommon adventure and much, much more involved that takes them farther afield than ever expected.
But sometimes the dolls' uncommon and unlikely adventures carry them outside and then they must be on guard and watch to be sure they are not seen. It seems there is even a photo of one of the dolls at the steering wheel of a car...perhaps she is just pretending but then again maybe she is driving?
The Intrix Doll will be delighted to arrive at her new home strikingly dressed in whichever outfit you select... whether it be a colorful skirt and blouse ensemble with button boots, or her Nomex® Ultimate Outfit with pull on boots. She is soft-bodied doll so she is cuddly and bends where she should: at her elbows and knees, shoulders and hips, and gently flexible at her neck. All of which makes changing her clothes, which she always enjoys doing, so much easier.
Jenny herself is made from the natural based materials of silk noil for her "skin" (lighter sand or darker caramel colors are both available) with a cotton lining to add stability to the textured surface of the raw silk. Her hair of 100% wool has flame resistance properties as does the silk of her body and her modern polyester stuffing.
Her embroidered "I love you" heart is customized with the name of your choice and outlined in red, her embroidered fingernails are pink, and her belly button is outlined in the black or brown of her eyebrows.

Cheerful and Bright. Removable and washable too. Made of natural cotton. Traditional white eyelet lace and old-fashioned narrow rick rack. White pearlized type buttons and coordinated embroidery detail for a touch of color accent.
One of their favorite styles is a brightly colored skirt and a coordinating blouse like those shown in the photos. The dolls often find themselves pondering the question, "Which outfit would look just right for today?" And then of course they must consider the best hair clip and necklace, perhaps even a bracelet.

For the day, During the night, In the evening, or At special occasions... There is nothing quite like Nomex® fibers, the same fibers that are in personal protective equipment worn worldwide by firefighters, military troops, race drivers, pit crews, electrical applications and industrial workers, and used in industries as far ranging as cement plants, steel factories, and commercial aircraft.
It is no surprise then that the Intrix Doll is uncommonly pleased with her Ultimate Outfit. These garments are made of an excellent lightweight heat and flame resistant fabric woven from DuPont™ Nomex® fibers (offering an uncommon level of safety not often found) and is trimmed with embroidered detail, lace, and ribbon.
A classic A-line full slip underlies her dress and a pair of bloomers, also trimmed with embroidered detail, lace and ribbon, peeks out from under the lower edge of her dress. Her pull on boots are made of a short napped polyester, velvety fabric, have a furry cuff, and are lined with the same Nomex® fabric utilized in her clothing.

The following explanation of Nomex® is taken directly from the DuPont™ website* because it offers such a clear explanation of Nomex®, a product that was developed during the 1960’s and first marketed in 1967. Five decades of ongoing research and development have made possible the high performance technical textile we are pleased to utilize in the Intrix Doll’s debut garments. This natural colored lightweight version of Nomex® fabric is woven to order and provides an unusual level of toy safety; and in addition, it is manufactured here in the United States of America.
“DuPont™ Nomex® fibers are heat- and flame-resistant, and are used in protective fabrics, garments, insulation, and other high-performance applications to help provide protection to millions of people and processes worldwide.
Nomex® is an inherently flame-resistant, high-temperature resistant fiber that will not melt, drip, or support combustion in air. It is offered in paper, felt, fabric, and fiber forms.
Nomex® brand fiber is used across a diverse range of applications, but it is perhaps best known as a critical component in protective apparel. Today, more than three million firefighters around the world are protected by turnout gear, stationwear and accessories made of Nomex® for its unique combination of flame protection, durability, and mobility. Nomex® also is used in apparel worn by military pilots and combat vehicle crew; auto racing drivers, pit crew members and track officials; and industrial workers at risk from flash fire and electric arc hazards. Some troops in Iraq are being outfitted with Nomex® flight suits to help protect them from burns caused by roadside bombs, the greatest threat to American troops.
Nomex® fibers are instrumental beyond protective apparel, as well. Motor, generator, transformer, and other electrical equipment manufacturers have used DuPont™ Nomex®, a standard for electrical insulation, for more than 40 years. Industries from asphalt and cement plants to chemical and steel factories use filter media made of Nomex® brand fiber. Honeycomb of Nomex® paper is used for lightweight structural support and helps substantially improve the performance of commercial aircraft.”

The flame resistance characteristics of the DuPont™ Nomex® fibers used in the Intrix Doll's debut garments are best maximized and maintained by using proper laundering techniques. The DPT Nomex Laundering Guide includes both commercial and home laundering. The Nomex Home Laundering Guide is excerpted from the DPT Nomex Laundering Guide and contains only the home laundering section. Both are taken directly from the recommendations of DuPont™, the developers and manufacturers of Nomex® fibers. Note the Intrix Doll's pull on boots with Nomex® lining must be laundered according to the gentler laundry processes recommended for the polyester fur.
