Yarn Tail: KTL-Fluffy Version by Catwoman69y2k Yarn Tail: KTL-Fluffy Version by Catwoman69y2k
For my leopardess fursona, Kat the Leopardess. I got an experimental project finished for the convention. Trust me, it was definitely an experiment that I hemmed and hawed over.

In the end, a lot of people said it is so fluffy that it could be a fox tail too. I cut it down from what it was before so that it could be a feline tail. These are not really things I could ever sell cheap due to the extra time it takes to brush out the yarn before doing the trim job on it. As you can see from this video they are just high maintenance--period.

Washing instructions: Use delicate setting with a gentle cycle. Cold water only. Place tail in white pillowcase zipped up. This will prevent the tail from wrapping around the agitator. Hang dry. Brushout of dry tail can take 30 minutes.

Inspired by this Bomby Tail

Is this your first tail? It looks a lot better then my first yarn tail. Just a tip: it works better if you brush the tuffs out more.

This was not my first tail but it was my first of the "fluffy" kind, using a different yarn than for my "standard" tails.

I do have quick question (and I apologize in advance if it has already been answered): Did you attach the yarn to the base and THEN brush it out? I'm going to possibly try this method, and I just wanted to double-check so I could stop being so paranoid about it...

I did attach the yarn to the base/core and then brushed it out from there. If you have one, carry a small spritzer bottle of water to keep the hair at bay. It gets really crazy after just a few brushes.

Alright, I'll try that out when I brush the tail out. I just finished attaching all the yarn to the core.

By the way, I love your hair in that video.

If a regular tail was ordered from you could the customer unravel and brush out the tail on their own?

A regular tail could be unravelled for a "ratty cat or dog" look. However, I use different yarn for the "fluffy" version which is made for producing a fluffy but non-ratty look.

What are your prices? I'm debating making my own tail, or buying one. I really want a fluffy one, and one that's wide like in this picture. Is there a way for you to put wire in it so it could stand up?

Im doubtful that I could put wire in it at this time. Usually I try and purpose my yarn tails so that they are light, produce good "sway" (for dancing and having it look real animated when doing wild twirls), and being compact (for packing to that fly-to convention).

Anyhow, the pricing for the fluffy tails is admittedly "expensive" to most peeps so I admit, I havent been very forthcoming with it. As it is with the regular tails, it will be dependent on how much color variety you need, but...

Short tails: $100
Long tails: $114

I dont think I really did a tutorial on it. My scraps section does show some in progress shots. Sorry for the clutter in there but I add scraps of damn near everything. :)

Cording is sewn/woven together to form the core

Very nice :clap:

They may take a lot of work to make and care for but I wouldn't be surprised if you got a couple of interested parties wanting tails ^.^

I doubt it. No one will pay $100 or more for a tail.

I might be being optimistic but I've seen people pay ridiculous amounts for something they really like. So don't write off the idea just yet ^.^

Yeah. Well, that takes some time before you attract consumers like that. In fact, in all retrospect, some of the people who have made yarn tails for years sell a bit cheaper than I (undercutting thier own hard work. Thats sad because they are kickass) and still waver on sales. So from that factoid, that is why I am a bit doubtful.

Well, I prefer to remain optimistic but I concede your knowledge in this matter.
