Oh the hair

Yesterday I worked on what kind of hair this lovely lady would like to have.  I dug through my wool roving and found the perfect white long Karakul.  Ready to weft. I made up some sections and pinned them to her head.  

Not real thrilled?!?  

Then I looked up yarn hair, that was OK but still not what I wanted. 

Lastly, I ended up using scraps from a T-shirt, cut 1/4" strips, pulled it and voila.................................that was it.  It's just pinned and I will have to figure out how I want to attach it.  Plus I will need to make some tail hair.  Then off to the shoes and maybe a few more treasures on her head.

I like that hair!! It looks like dreads and perfect for a forest creature. Perfection. I follow you on FB, but please never stop blogging.
