I should have posted these earlier but I just never got round to it.
I`ve wanted dreads FOREVER, but never been brave enough to dread up my real hair :/ So last year I dyed my hair fleuro pink and stuck in some MASSIVE pink dreads I made,

They were epic, even though everybody though I looked like a total burk Tongue
So for the next set I decided to do something slightly more low key, I went bright red and ordered some hand-blended merino roving (Gorgeous colour!)



I adore this set SO much! They were the right length, thickness, colour, everything! As soon as it gets a bit cooler they are going back in!
After that set I made a new set in hand-blended purple shades, with turquoise tips. But I couldnt dye my hair to match properly as I found out I was pregnant Cheesy




The next set I want to make is in my natural hair colour so that I can add in random bits of colour by just swapping a couple of dreads in >.<

First off - congrats!!! Babies are pretty exciting business. Are you going to make little baby sized dreads for him/her?? Ah-ha kidding (but seriously you should do it) Wink

Second - I LOVE the dreads! You look so classy with the red ones in. Really awesome!! I've also been too scared for dreads, I never even thought of something like this Shocked

I've wanted some felt dreads for a long time but then I shaved my head last year  and it doesn't really work so... maybe in a few months I'll learn to make my own short ones? Thanks for the inspiration! I agree with the Monkey, the red ones rock!
