I was wondering if the mohair and doe suede for hair and bodies come from, um, dead animals? It may seem a silly question, but I can't tell if it's called doe suede because it's leather suede or if that's just a reference to the texture, and if the mohair is shorn or if animals are killed to farm it. It wouldn't have occurred to me, but I bought a mohair wig for another kind of doll once, and it was beautiful, but still attached to animal skin.
And if the mohair isn't shorn, can anyone suggest a source for a synthetic alternative?
I'm grateful for any help!
