So far I have only used the Slumberland and it was from Canada I believe. I bought chocolate brown yearling and light brown kid mohair. I found it incredibly soft and easy to work with but I have no basis for comparison yet. I've actually really only used the yearling mohair. The kid mohair is so fine and delicate that I've saved it for a baby that didn't have the hair grooves carved into the head. I'm planning on using it on my next baby (Sienna from Denise Pratt).

I also just purchased some light brown HQ Pitter Patter wavy mohair and am waiting for it to be delivered. I should be able to compare it soon(ish)

I've not heard of Pitter Patter mohair, do you have a link?

I've only used Angela's Reborn Nursery mohair so far, but have some on order from babycre8tions. I'd like to try some others too. So, at this point I also have nothing to compare.

Hey, I have Sienna Pratt too!

The Slumberland I used kept break off, and ended up being expensive rubbish.

I love Susan Nagel, I only buy Yearling and buyfrom her direct.

I also have some Angel Sprott, which I like a lot.

I have recently gone back to using Slumberland (after being scared of it because of other people's bad experiences) and absolutely loved the last batch (I bought yearling for straighter hair).

I guess it depends what you are looking for as well - Slumberland hair sits quite flat on the head (which I like)

The only other one on your list that I have tried is Susan Nagel which is also lovely quality and the colours are very nice but has a lot more volume. I guess it would be better for an older baby look/thicker hair look.

Sharla I would love to hear what the Pitter Patter is like

I just received my Pitter Patter mohair. I bought it from:

http://www.oncesoreal.com/index.php?lang...ue4jarana8

It says it's imported from the USA so you might be able to find it cheaper over there. While I've not actually rooted with it yet, I've opened the package to have a look at it and right off the bat I can say I'm a little nervous about using it. It just feels/looks a less conditioned compared to the Slumberland I've used, but this could also be down to the color difference. I've noticed as well, the pieces are not as uniformly sized as the Slumberland was, so there are 6 inch locks in with 10-12 inch locks. I'll give an update after I've actually used it though as these are only cursory observations.
