Tussah Silk
Doll Hair
Tussah silk is a natural fiber gathered from wild silk worms. It naturally has a beige / tan color from the tannins in the oak leaves that the caterpillars
eat.  This Tussah Silk has been pre-bleached to a white shade to make custom dying easier.  Tussah takes dye beautifully.   It's loved by both
spinners and needle felters for its softness and luster and its a wonderful option for doll hair.  I've used Tussah on several dolls and love the look
and feel.

Tussah dyed with Jacquard Acid Dye - Turquoise.  It took less than 60 seconds to
achieve this color using a pinch of dye powder in water.  Like any silk, Tussah wants to
be slightly acidic, so it should be rinsed in a mild solution of vinegar to neutralize any
alkaline chemicals used in dyeing.  
Tussah Silk is mostly a straight fiber, fine, soft and shiny. It can be curled and styled in many different ways.  It will come in a poly bag as
pictured below in the Viscose section.  Each bag will contain a 9 inch length of silk.

Tip:
When dying any of the fibers, rubberband one end of the fibers together tightly.   This will keep it in one bundle and
provide something for you to hold on to.  

If you leave your fibers loose in the dye bath, you will end up with a clump of fibers.
Viscose Doll Hair
Perfect for fairies, mermaids or miniatures.  Viscose is a man-made
fiber made from bamboo pulp.  You can have the freedom of styling it
All of my Viscose Doll hair and Silk fibers come in a 3 x 5 inch baggie.  
You get a generous amount of fiber, enough for several dolls.  

Actual fibers range in length from 3- 4 inches and a hank is a portion
of the roving itself.  Hanks are approximately 9 inches in length.

Add dimension and drama to a
hair style, just add some darker
shade of fiber.

Creating a frosted effect is
easy and blending colors can
give a more natural look to the
hair.   

Mixing Angelina Fibers with
darker hair colors will add flash
and sparkle.

You can create your own custom colors using Jacquard Acid dyes.  The acid refers to using
vinegar to set the color.   The hide will shrink a bit, but it can be reshaped as it dries.  This
shrinkage has no effect on the hair fibers.

Tibetan Succotash!

Each Tibetan plate has some rough edges/areas.  It can't be avoided.  I  use sections with the least amount of
seams and the most
consistent length.   If the fur isn't as long or it has too many seams, I cut it off and it becomes
a scrap.  

The fur is perfectly ok, but these pieces can be 1 inch to 3 inches wide by 5 inches in length, sometimes longer,
sometimes shorter.  
They work well for animal sculptures, troll dolls or other creative characters.

The Tibetan Succotash will have at least 6 colors and the fur will range between 2 - 4 inches in length.   
Each bag has a minimum weight of 2 ounces.  I know, doesn't sound like a lot, but that bag is 9 x 12 and you can
see how much is in there.  It's the equivalent of three 5x5 pieces.   Enough to do m
any dolls.
