Straight mohair with adorable little loops running along the core thread. Custom spun and available in beautiful, subtle and muted tones for natural looking curls in a mohair/wool blend. We love if for curly caps for babies, boys, and very young dolls. The size of the loops on this lightweight bouclé work well on smaller dolls when compared with our De Witte Engle Mohair Boucle and many beginners find it easier to crochet or knit, as well.
Plenty of yarn for long hair on a doll up to 20" in height.
To create a bulky weight "designer" type yarn, double-strand it on size 10.5 knitting needles (size K or larger crochet hook) at 3 stitches per inch.

Such wonderful yarn for dolls' hair! Seeing the joy on my students' faces when they finish their doll with this last step and can cuddle their new doll with a full head of hair!
Love the yarn! Shipping was very fast!
This yarn makes absolutely wonderful hair for the Waldorf dolls. I used it for long hair, which can be braided, put in a pony tail, or left loose. My 6 year old granddaughter loves the doll and the hair.
I use this for curly hair dolls. They have very natural color and it looks great.
I love this yarn. Once crocheted into a cap, it can easily be brushed out to make straight soft hair.
I use this boucle for my Waldorf dolls and absolutely love it, for its high quality, reasonable price and variety of colors. I recommend A Child's Dream to my doll making students as a great source for their doll making needs.
