Curly Yarn Wrapped Dreads?!

Forum rules
If it is fake hair related it goes in here!
1) Nice clear pic of the hair- we are not particularly interested in cam whoring - you want to show yourself off - put it in the gallery for 'everything else'.
2) When commenting - please be more OT than "wow you are freakin' hot!" We all like to be told we are hot mamma's - but mention the hair too!
3) Please don't be horrified if people give you helpful criticism. If you give criticism, please do so respectfully.
4) If you would like to NOT hear criticism, please say so.
5) If you are specifically looking to refine your technique, please post it in the "Critique" section (under Advice & Know How) so we can help be extra picky. ;)
6) The Show Off section is only for showing off hair, not making sales. Please make no references to eBay, A and P, or any kind of sales. You may offer the same item for sale in A and P, but no cross linking between A and P and Show Off. Show Off should be a place to comment and encourage each other; we don't want Show Off to become a billboard for sellers.

Curly Yarn Wrapped Dreads?!

Thought it was neat and wanted to share.
They are a bit stiff due to the yarn wrap but I think would make cute falls or a wig.

Its just your average run of the mill yarn.
It was left over from a crochet project.

The dreads are synthetic hair dreads. Its a double end'er with one side wrapped with yarn.

Glad you all like it!
I just tied the yarn tight at the ends and then lightly burned them with a lighter.
I picked the idea up from people wrapping real dreads.
These were originally straight and worn once for Burning Man. I made a curly dread tutorial by curling the set after washing them and I had two of these bad boys so I tried the same method and curled them. Its a bit harder to curl then like this.

That's a cool idea! Even if they are a bit stiff, it would be nice for a few accents. I know when i had natural dreads and i wrapped them with thread and stuff, they would be stiff for a few days then soften up with wear. especially in the summer when i was swimming a lot.
