Natural fibers question
« on: June 23, 2018, 01:44:55 AM »
Me again, with yet another hair question! I think I mentioned it before but I highly prefer natural fibers over synthetic and so I ordered some pastel colours of Tussah silk. I also have some romie rovings and superfine Merino. Thing is, I've only seen tutorials on wigs made with brushed yarn or various synthetic fibers and I'm wondering how I can treat these fibers, what kind of heat they withstand, etc. So far I've made a test weft of each to see what I can expect to work with and silk is super finicky and sheds like a (censoring myself here but there was fluffy bits everywhere). Romie is strangely very...plastic-y? but it'll work perfectly for making long hair I think. Anyway, my question is: does anyone have experience with these fibers and can I follow any wig tutorial with these (ex. could I make a Mozekyto brushed yarn wig but replace the brushed yarn with silk) or do I need to find specific resources to work with natural fibers?
