Reborn artist's rooting mohair







Big storm here today. That is fine by me. I have been plenty of things to keep me busy, so I will spend the day inside working.



I have started a new testimonial page on my http://www.mohairandwool.com/ site. I am a folk artist but I have to say I am totally fascinated by the art of rooting mohair.


I know making up the mohair for the reborns is a ton of work. From the washing to dying to combing it out. After spend hours preparing it I then send it off to some very talented reborn artist. They spend days rooting several hairs at a time. The results looks like a real babies head. Here are some beautiful pictures that have been rooted from my mohair. The doll artists name is Kimberly Dawn from Angelic Treasures Nursery.
Tomorrow I am going to talk about rooting with Alpaca. Another spectacular fiber.

I was wondering if you can share what color dyes you use for which color?

Thanks so much!
