Doll Making Wig Tutorial

Here is a link to the wefted mohair wig tutorial I made.

This is what you need:
Mohair yarn to match your weft or wool (www.mohairwig.com Susan Doyle)
Crochet needle

Instead of every other row, single crochet the weft in every row.

This wefted Mohair  wig method is my personal one, but I give it to you as a gift to use for your own doll making.  You may use my wig tutorial to make wigs for the dolls you sell, when credit is given to me for the technique.  This tutorial is not to be copied and resold as your own wig tutorial. Also, wigs made from my tutorial are not to be sold individually. Thank you for respecting and honoring my work.

  3. This is amazing! Thank you very much for sharing!! I've always wondered how you make your wonderful doll hair!
    I have a question, does the mohair wig felt or loses its shape with the children play?
    thank you very much

    1. Ciao! Luisa ,
      the Mohair weft is very sturdy and it holds the shape just beautifully you can comb it with a wide spaced comb or a brush but like every other wig be gentle . I know the very fine mohair will felt but so far the coarse mohair does not but that does not mean it can't you need to bush it from time to time I hope that was of some help to you
      Ciao! Gabi

  6. Loved the technique, thank you. About how many yards of weft do you recommend? try to get a guesstimate. I'd be sad if I didn't get enough.

  13. What a great tutorial, Gabi! Do you glue the wig on the doll's head? My dolls are painted cloth, just wondering if I could sew the wig on, what do you think would work best?

    1. I found it!!! Just above the "Comments," you'll see "LABELS: TUTORIALS"--this is your link. Once you've clicked on TUTORIALS the page will come up. Just scroll down about 1/3 of the way and you'll find the Wefted Mohair Wig video and photo. Yay!
