So I was talking about rerooting a mohair in my last post (yes it’s been months!!) and I am happy to be able to say that I survived my first mohair reroot.
Compared to rerooting saran, I prefer mohair because it is a lot faster. However, not wanting to go down the lane of dyeing raw mohair, I was restricted to ordering pre dyed mohair. There are simply not a lot of choices out there when you are looking for pre dyed mohair and if you want them beyond 6 inches. But I still think it turned out well despite the limitations.
I picked Silky, my Save The Animal doll for this project. I decided I wanted a little tanned girl to carry off that red hair. Plus I hated how I ruined her scalp from my first wefting projecting. I replaced her old scalp with a cool cat scalp for this project. Cool cat scalps fit amazingly and although it is slightly taller than the regular head dome, it does not matter much in this case because it will be covered by all that mohair fluffiness anyway.
So here’s Ponyo, my creation, dressed in Louos Loves. She’s already on her way to her new mummy. I really hope she likes her as much as I did.
I think I will be keeping the next mohair reroot and Louos Loves set for myself.
