I have decided. My Project Blythe this month will be a mohair doll. I was contemplating putting my STA (Silky) up for adoption since I barely play with it. Deep down, I also know the real reason behind that. The reason is her glaring scalp line and it is my fault too. I had failed to remove her scalp properly the first time and it had resulted in mangled or none existent flange. Never EVER attempt customization when feeling down and out!
I was putting her up for adoption on TIB when it suddenly hit me that I do not have a Mohair Blythe. I stopped typing. I do like STA. I think she’s a very classy, elegant chick, albeit the original Mumsy hair that she came with and my failed attempt at giving her luscious locks. What if, just what if… I give her another new look. She could be my first mohair baby.
My search for mohair started. The Bountiful Baby site scared the shit out of me and I had to get out of that site as soon as I can without buying anything. I did not want wefted mohair from Coolcat, besides the hair looks like a mess and the colors looked unimaginative. I spent the last two hours researching on Mohair and found that 1) bad news is that there are not many sites that sells nice dyed mohair that ships overseas and 2) good news is that shearing months are in August (yipee!) which means there will be lots of mohair to go about soon.
I have emailed 2 sellers who looked like they might be willing to dye the hair for you at reasonable prices. Now I am just playing the waiting game. I will come back with more information on this site once I have found my source.
Wish me good luck!
