TUTORIAL Yarn Tail

Published:

My very first yarn-tail. Not as fluffy as I hoped, but very fluffy nevertheless. The core is made from the wire of a normal hanger, is very flexible, yet suprisingly stable. Shaping it is quite hard and for small parts, like the loop connecting to the buckle, you have to use tools.

Nice! Using a hair straightener on the brushed out floof, will help you get the results you're after.

The amount of time that must have took... but it looks AMAZING!
luthien368's avatar
Yes but yes. And I had worse ^^°

luthien368's avatar
Wire of a cloth hanger. See the linked tutorial also

I notice I'm a shallow bit late on this, but what wire did you use for this?
luthien368's avatar
I guess I have to write an FAQ on this, especially this question allone, which I also answered I don't know how often X) I used a cloth hanger, very cheap and durable

did you use a flat iron?

and did you trim the tail? cus mine always turns out with a pointy tip :p
luthien368's avatar
Yea, a flat iron (don't know what happens though if you use a riffeled one though... more volume? ), but never altually had to trim (except when I wanted a thinner part or a pointy tip ^^ )

Is it posible to make leperd spots?
luthien368's avatar
I guess not, cause the markings will blur. Maybe you wanna try it out by yourself.
BlueCrystalTiger's avatar

I used your tutorial to make some fur for my husbands costume, thanks so much for posting! I made sure to link back to this page as well. 
luthien368's avatar
Wonderful, would love to see the finished costume!

using a hair straightener on the yarn at a 360 degree temperature would help make the yarn longer and nice and silky, plus would probably add the fluff you want ^-^ just saying! It is a beautiful tail tho! I wish my first tail came out that nicely. :3
luthien368's avatar
Yea, forgot to mention/do that the first time I made (and documented) the tail XP
oh...that's cool...i would to try
