Your sister is very creative Fran...just like you! bear_flower bear_wub  Neat neck rings.   Does she have a website?

My sister went to Thialand a couple of years ago and took pictures of ladies with these neck rings... I could not believe how uncomfortable they looked.  To them it is very attractive.  Wonder what they think of us?

JazzyFran.....please tell your 'crazy'-like-a-fox sis that her work is fab!

I have toyed with the idea on a golly...but Hubbs keeps vetoing- guess I'll just have to do it...

what kind of yarn/wool does she use?  Can you tell me?  ( I guess what I am saying is I totally understand if she doesn't want that info out....totally respect it)

Her lady is so whimsical.....Thank you for sharing the pictures!  I love what you two come up with!

Well here's a piccy of them

and hopefully - this is the link to the eBay seller

Yep it works!

You can twist these and lightly felt them to keep them in shape as they have a very long staple (not really sure what that means but i think it's the long guard hairs from the goat).

I have tried making dreadlocks with these and they work well - bit shinier than those on the doll but i have only used bright colours not black.

Hope this helps - maybe the expert doll maker will know better though -hope her operation goes well by the way
