    technically your hair past the scalp is dead already on your head... so i really dont see much difference when its off the head...
    that being said, i doubt id want to use it for stuffing though, hair tends to be itchy, and thin random stray hairs will poke out of fabric..
    besides, once its off the body, the follicles producing oil wont be attached either... so not sure how it would still work after its been washed

    Do you mean I need to collect my hair for stuffing? Ick!
    You wash your hair, don't you????? Just think, our forefathers (foremothers???) used to collect horse hair for home decor -- stuffing chairs, making pictures......LOL
    Ick! Ick! Ick!

    My hair sheds off me in such quantity it wouldn't take long to stuff something but I HATE picking it out of the drain, sweeping it off the floor, plucking it off upholstery and brushing it from my clothes.

    And - it's on my head when I wash it. A totally different process. Imagine, all that hair laid out to dry........ICK.

    I have lots of deer hair around the yard, wonder how it would work to stuff things.
    "Now, I really do think I'm going to "barf!!" LOL

    I just read, if you have trouble pulling your needle thru fabric, use a fabric softner sheet. This sounds better than all the hair stuff.
