Lamb's Pride Worsted Weight creates lovely, soft straight hair on your natural fiber doll and is what we supply in our Joy's Waldorf Dolls kits. The strands are easily separated, the yarn substantial and it is perfect for little hands to comb through with their fingers and style.
The thicker Lamb's Pride Bulky Weight is a favorite of many, including Hana of Pepper and Pine, for the hair of wood peg dolls when cut into little bits and glued on to the wood head. It provides good coverage with less strands producing a nice effect.
Both weights can also be used for hobby horses and Raggedy Ann dolls.
