I cleaned up the attic (really!) and found a box full of wigs, most of them from the Seeley-mohair wig production of the late 1980s - the "Karin Wigs". They were in the box for about 25 to 30 years. Some of the wigs are quite tousled! They can be wet and/or shampooed, and then styled as desired or left to dry naturally, when the natural curl will emerge. Or you can just leave them tousled for an antique look! The photos of the wigs have a distinct reddish tint and this does not reflect the real color of the wigs - none of the blond wigs have a reddish tint!   All  Karin Wigs have the loose mohair stitched directly to the wig cap, which results in a smooth, fine, non-bulky wig. This method was unique in doll wigs and required very skilled workers. Although many of the wigs are tousled, the mohair is exceptionally beautiful and of superb quality.
