Hair for masks
« on: June 28, 2017, 10:35:15 AM »
I was hoping someone might be able to help me find a good spot to buy hair for mask making (in Canada if possible but would love to hear all options).   I have tried emailing CopperMoose but get no replies?   Also can people chime in as to what type of hair they use the most as I am brand new to this hobby (hobby for me at least).

Thanks for any help

There are naturals and synthetics. Top wool is commonly used on
wearable masks because it is lightweight. Mohair also works well.
Try TheWoolery, FoxgloveFiber, or PacificWoolandFiber. Do a search
on spinning fibers for local suppliers. Synthetics include modacrylic
and Kanekalon which I believe is a spun plastic. Try National Fiber
Technologies. Kanekalon is available on eBay in every color you
can imagine. Be sure to post pics of your finished project; no hiding!

Doh!

I got some black hair here for my Fly mask a few years ago, but don't recall the type:
