Dreaded fur
My turn to ask a question. So I'm guessing most of you saw the Dr Who xmas special and the Cybershades, and saw that their fur (as far as I can tell) is long dread-like locks. As you might've guessed I'm planning on a set of Cybershade costumes and am currently looking for the right kind of fur.
I've tried looking but haven't had much luck, basically I'm looking for something like the kind of fur Pulis and Komondors have.

I would love to help, but I'm not a dr who fan. You got a reference picture?

Unfortunately there's not a single image online I've been able to find that shows the fur properly.
This is the kind of dreaded fur I mean though:

Have you ever looked at wool tops? I remember ordering some to make felt once and made a set of dreds out of them. They come in lots of colours and things.

What you can do is to buy a very long fur in the right colour, get some wool tops to match and weft in the dreads. Sounds complicated but it would probably give you the best kind of effect

Hope that's helpful!

Ah those would be perfect! I didn't even think of using them that way. Thanks very much!
