What can you do with a yard of white mohair?

On February 4, I bought one yard of 5/8” semi-sparse white mohair. Beautiful, isn’t it?

My intent was to be able to use it for whatever struck my fancy as far as colors go.

The first bear I made was Link. A little air brushing turned white mohair into a panda.

Then there was Rhapsody, made from a tea stained portion of the mohair.

And along came Angelo with a bit of tea staining and air brushing.

Next came Lightening. In addition to using a tea stained portion of this mohair for Lightening, I also used a bit of golden tan mohair I had on hand.

Another panda made the scene after that.. Her name is Tink. I dyed a portion of the mohair black and airbrushed in her panda eyes and chest.

Then there was Hemlock (formerly Tim). I dyed a portion of the mohair a beautiful light brown.

And the last bear created was Ching. I used the leftover dyed brown mohair and airbrushed in her panda features.

Pretty neat, huh? I love the versatility of the white. You know…. I think I’ll do this again and see what the next yard turns into.

Stay tuned…
