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. It provides good coverage with less strands producing a nice effect. Cream (white) can be ordered from the Lamb's Pride Solid Colors' page.
Both weights can also be used for hobby horses and Raggedy Ann dolls.

I was looking for a natural color (sandy) for my second grader's knitted bunny project. This was perfect and the bunny turned out beautifully! The yarn is easy to work with and is sturdy.
I love this yarn for peg doll and bendy doll hair. I have almost all the colors. I have been slowly adding them for a while now and can't wait to have them all.
