|You can very easily create a hair loom to take the work out of
cutting lengths of yarn for your dolls.
You will need the following:
1 40" piece of 1" x 4" wood
1 foot of 3/8" dowel
drill with 3/8" bit
Saw the 3/8" dowel into 3 pieces each 3 ½" long. Drill a hole 2" from each end of the 40" piece of wood to fit the wood dowel snugly. Glue a dowel in each hole using wood glue. Drill 5 more holes between the two dowels with 6" between each hole.
When you want to cut lengths of yarn for hair, just place the remaining dowel in the hole for the desired length and wind the yarn around the two dowels.
