Fake Dreadlocks made with Wool Roving!

!!! *** EDIT! I hung these locks, still wet, up to dry. In the morning, they had expanded once they were dry. I cannot stress how important it is that you roll them small & tight! They will hold up much better the next day when they are fully felted! *** !!!

** This is my first attempt at Wool Roving Falls & I must say I was surprised at how neat they turned out for a first shot! So much different than making dreads out of synthetic hair. **

* I will make a tutorial as soon as I have time. I really feel like people shouldn't have to pay the *crazy* prices that I see on-line. In total, this project cost me a grand total of... $20! Granted, it took awhile to do all the rolling, but thats the price we pay for fashion.. right? *

** These are not finished yet! In total, there are 14 double ended dreads. Meaning, 28 ends total. I know that a full set would be 30 ends on each side, but I didn't have the time tonight to do that. **

* Some of the blue falls turned out much chunkier & lighter than some of the other locks, so I need to make a set of smaller, longer falls to cover up my head in the back. *

Thanks for taking a look!
