Question doll help

Hi everyone,

I was just wondering if anyone could tell me where I could get some black wool (used for hair on Navajo dolls)? I would like to work on a doll & love how the wool works out perfectly for hair.

Thanks!

That hair looks like wool ROVE. Most of the artisan yarn shops will have rove. The main thing you want to make sure of is that what you get is coming from a black sheep.

You don't want dyed rove. I have had some old rove that was dyed black that did not age well. If it is from a black sheep, you have no worries.

I would call yarn shops nearby for it. But make sure you tell them you do not want dyed rove. Otherwise you can order it over the internet. I noticed some at etsy.
