With our unique option to customize your filler, you have the choice to fill for softness, weight, and for scent! Flaxseed is super absorbent of the natural oils, and it's also very soft in bulk. Rice and pearled barley add weight and so does ground flax meal. Flax meal and rolled oats are very soft and also absorb oils well for scent. If you want a lighter doll, choose buckwheat hulls. If you want a heavy doll, choose cracked corn meal. My favorite blend is flax seed and oats, pictured below.
