BB premium mohair

Well, alpaca is really hard to root for me because its so fine. I think synthetic is the worse because I experienced it by it didn’t root good and also it wouldn’t lay flat to the head. Lol!


#22

What actually is Mohair? Where does it come from?
I’m so confused on the differences between Mohair, Alpaca, and real human hair. I mean I know the differences, but I don’t know which is used for which babies, etc.


#23

My understanding - Mohair is from a goat and is good for all reborns as well as alpaca. Human hair is better on older babies. I use human hair or whatever I feel is necessary for the Alternative I am working on. I am sure someone will come along and refine what I said, lol. That was the quick version.


#24

This might help. Not that you’re a Dummy lol


#25

I believe there is one more on alpaca hair, just not seeing it yet.


#26

Sent you a PM


#27

When it comes to mohair, I am! Lol. Ty so much for the link.


#28

Well, it helped me too :laughing: an no problem :wink:


#29

Do you recommend it for lanugo or baby fine hairs around the sides?


#30

I never rooted alpaca hair before, but I order some and haven’t used it yet because it very difficult to root. I heard most people said alpaca is really fine to root lanugo and the baby fine hairs around the face.:slightly_smiling_face:


#31

I’m going to try that when I root Tacy. Thanks for letting me know! I’m


#32

I use super fine blonde kid for lanugo but alpaca might work better I think. It’s worth a shot


#33

It’s worth a try!


#34

Definitely is! And if it doesn’t work the way you want you can always sell it or use it on a different doll


#35

Alpaca comes from Alpaca, not a goat and is usually finer than kid mohair
