Mohair doll wigs by Wendy.J.Feidt
Making handmade mohair wigs for your antique, antique reproduction dolls since 1977
Welcome to my handmade mohair wig web site for antique dolls and reproduction antique dolls. I have been making my custom handmade mohair wigs for antique doll collectors and antique and original reproduction doll artists since 1977, and what a joy it has been throughout the years helping you complete your doll with the perfect hair style. I started my business making wigs out of a small shoe box of english mohair, needles and fabric, and with my mothers help I fashioned my first wig on a Sunday in 1976 . For many years my mother collected fine antique dolls, sold antique dolls and repaired dolls for the public . Through the years as I watched dolls come in to my mothers collection I was able to enjoy each doll and their history, which to this day I value, My first attempt at wig making would lead to many years of trial and error, with lots of trips to the garbage and hundreds of dollars of hair supply and wigs tossed out. With the help of my clients ,they helped my wig making business get on its feet with encouragement and great advise along the way. Today I feel so thankful to have worked for some of the biggest reproduction doll artists that are now gone, they taught me so much along the way as a young artist, what to make and what colors they needed for their dolls, it was all so fun. Through the years my work has been seen on the front covers of Doll Artisan Guild magazine, Doll Reader and various other doll publications. Many years ago I was honored with a drawing of myself and one of my original designed wigs in” Ripley’s Believe It Or Not”, that lead to an article in Grit magazine, showing a photo of me sitting in my studio. In the early 80’s, Mildred Seeley included one of my designs in her french doll books showing one of my little handmade wigs with instructions on how to make a mohair wig for a doll, but it wasn’t my wig making method, still it was such an honor showing one of my wig designs, primitive as it was . Many of you already have some of my early wigs, which were signed with my maiden name Wendy Haugen. Each wig I create is on a hand-sewn cotton wig cap, which is fashioned on a bisque head to create a wonderful fitting wig for your doll. All of my mohair wigs are stamped and hand signed by me and dated by me, never do I make a wig without signing and dating it . Over the years I have created 42 original mohair wig designs and many antique variations, all in all, 63 designs in my portfolio . Please remember, my wigs are hand made and will vary slightly from the picture shown . I work with many styles and textures of mohair off many goats, young and old, and every goat has a different style and texture of mohair depending on age and genetics. I also work with English mohair, which I primarily use for my fancier designs you see with all the spiral curls and braids. When choosing your wig design, I also offer 100% silk bows which I hand tie and hand sew onto each wig. If you do not want a bow added to your wig, you do not have to order one, it is only an option.
