Yards and yards and yards

<span class=
Of hair wraps. Lots of colors and sizes too. All are ready to put in the store. I am still making more in different colors and patterns; there will be three lengths and four different patterns to choose from. All these are made with vintage to antique crochet thread. Meaning on the labels that came with the threads it read boil fast not color fast. Because people used to boil their clothes to get them clean, you didn't want the dyes coming out in the boiling water so they were called boil fast. Some of the threads are over 100 years old. They are still strong and sturdy for use.

The lengths are 40 inches, 60 inches and 80 inches. The way the length was determined for each head wrap was by how much vintage thread I had. If I had a complete ball, I would make a long one; if I had partial balls of thread, then it would end up as a medium or short length. Since these threads come from estate sales, thrift stores and antique stores, once I use a color to make a head wrap I won't be able to get it again because most are not even companies that exist anymore. So to me, each is a one-of-a-kind made with vintage thread on vintage hooks. When the store opens all of these plus more will be available. There will also be items from other artisans -- all handmade.
