I would like to know what is the best yarn to use for doll hair? One I can brush and won't be curly? Any ideas or suggestions?

The novelty stuff I hate to knit: eyelash 'yarn'.

Lol... Thanks Jessica-Jean. I don't like eyelash yarn either. I am making a replica of a colleague and she has very straight hair so it would have to be kind of smooth. Do you think 100% wool could be ironed and 'combed' ?
I'm not familiar enough with wool's attributes to say, but I suspect it wouldn't last long under repeated combing. If the hair needs to be long, I'd shop on eBay for doll hair. If short, I'd still look at some of the eyelash yarns.

Good luck!
