We made doll hair like that when we were kids. I recall that you also have to fray the yarn sometimes to make it look like fuller hair (as in the photo).


This is a nice way to use leftover yarn bits.

Wool yarn hair can also be dampened and curled. My mom made "pincurls" by forming a curl of the yarn held in place with a small square of cardboard held in place with a straight pin poked into the doll's soft head and left to dry overnight. Try rolling the strands around a tube of suitable size, and maybe holding these curlers in place with pins, too.
