I think you need to stitch - I'd be afraid glue would gum up the furriness of the yarn.

I'm not sure what kind of a look you're going for, but considering how fuzzy that stuff is, I'd definately say stitch it on.  If you couch it down with matching sewing thread, you'll be sure to get that main base thread attached every time, while, I would think, with glue you might end up only glueing down the fuzzies or getting them gunky.  Good luck!

You might want a more substantial fuzz than just a strand of fun fur will give.  Maybe a boa?  Or you could knit or crochet a band of fun fur, then sew that on.
