Wig Ventilating Experiment

Today I started experimenting with ventilating a wig. I guess that is the correct way to say it? Ventilating a wig means to tie knots of hair into the wig cap. I tried some wool roving first. The wool roving I have does not have long enough fibers for the type of wig I want. Next I tried unraveling some 4-ply yarn. I can control the length of the hair this way, but the strands of yarn are too thick for a wig.

I used a small steel crochet hook for a ventilating tool.

Here is a tutorial at Den of Angels about using yarn to ventilate a wig.
