Wig "Hair"

Yarn For Hair

  • For all wigs except Jack Sparrow, Blue Elsa Beanie, Rainbow, and Purple Rapunzel Beanie, the color of the hair MUST match the color of the beanie.
  • This yarn does not HAVE to be labeled soft, but soft yarn does look and hang much more nicely, so it is preferred

Beanie Yarn

Beanie Yarn

  • Beanies must be made using soft ACRYLIC yarn.
    • Wool yarn can be scratchy
    • While alpaca yarn is soft and usually not allergy-inducing, we do want to stay away from yarns made from animal fibers, just to be safe.
    • Cotton yarn is generally seen as a great yarn for hotter climates (wicks moisture/sweat away), but when crocheted into a beanie cap, it is not nearly as soft as soft acrylic yarns.
  • Not all soft yarn is created equal
    • “I Love This Yarn” and “Red Heart with Love” are both soft yarns and are acceptable, but they are thicker than yarns like Caron Simply Soft and Red Heart Soft, and often, beanies made with these yarns end up larger and more loosely crocheted, so crocheters may need to adjust their tension or hook sizes when working with these yarns. ALWAYS try your beanie on a foam head that is at least 21” circumference to make sure it will fit!
    • Caron Simply Soft, Red Heart Soft, and Yarn Bee Soft Secret are nearly identical in their thickness and sheen and make beautiful beanies.
