This mohair is made specifically for toddler or older dolls because it is longer and straighter than most of our other mohair. This mohair is made from a more mature or adult goat and although it is very soft, it has a thicker and firmer feel. Baby locks mohair by Heike Politz is a high quality mohair processed and and dyed by Heike herself. The mohair goes through many processes but the end result really shows in your finished dolls. People love this mohair and it is worth the higher price tag because it is a dream to root.
