I figured out what happened, i copy pasted but it didn't take so I put somebody up twice.
Thanks again for pointing it out I would have felt terrible!

Apologies.

I would be really interested in this, seeing as how I have a ton of roving wool and would love to make a set for someone!!
Although I just started making them several people I know personally are wearing them and I think they are a fair enough quality, but I am not sure I am up in the leagues with some of the other dread makers, and I want the swap to be fair for them!'
So I will take some pictures this week, but if I can be considered I would definitely love to participate in somee surprise dread swapin' :i2:

I make DE roving dreads usually about 50-60 for a whole set and the lengths vary depending on the person whose going to where them!

Just a quick update. I've made 16 dreads so far. I know it's not alot but the style is quite time consuming. I wasn't sure on the set at first but now I'm adding the colours they're looking good :)

Eek! I'm up to 10 so far but I have secured the hard to find embellishments I need for this set:) Was able to barter a raccoon skull I had for some fox and pine martin vertebrae!
I hope I'm not going to have an issue at customs!?
Guess I should include a note explaining what species (not endangered) they are and how they were obtained (road kill scavenged)
Hope that works:))

Ooh, I wish I'd seen this sooner, I'd love to take part in a swap (providing I have time to make the dreads) as I need practice and no one I know wants dreads. :/

Oh, well, I hope there will be more world-wide dread swaps. :)

Got my hair in about 4 days ago, and I've gotten about half backcombed, and they're ready for their palm rolling then needle felting, and boiling then cold water tomorrow!


I'm so excited about these colors hehe
