Wig Experiments Commence

Yesterday, I began my first foundling steps into the world of raw alpaca fiber to finished wig.

Suri Alpaca - Separated & Cleaned

Some time back I purchased a bundle of raw suri alpaca.  Afterwards, I had gotten sick and later I just simply hadn’t gotten around to messing with it.  Finally, I sat down and slowly, meticulously, pieced out the different sizes for lock bundles. Rubber banded them, and washed them. Now, to be honest, I had needed to wash them without the rubber bands, but the locks were too tiny so left them on. The result is that they are still dirty under the bands. Gonna work on washing them later to solve that. Otherwise, they came out awesome!! Beautiful, soft, and white!

I even bought a straightener and small comb. The remainders are going into my combing for yarn roving and felting projects. I plan on purchasing more locks soon, of an appropriate length, lol. The entire process was way easier than I expected! Just need to decide on dye products and I’m in business! And allll of my BJD family will have wigs…. I’m looking at you, Bríean!
