Tails!

Riyeko

Hai Thar.
Okay, so im trying to create a tail by using yarn.
Just plain ole black and white cotton yarn that you can literally find anywhere.

Now, instead of leaving the yarn "intact" I decided to unwind the small strands that ive hotglued to the base of my "tail", to create a more... full look.

Well, now i have the problem of... all the yarn that ive unwound, looks all curly.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to "straighten" the yarn out?
My sister has a hair straightener, I have an iron.. but I believe using both of those might burn or catch the thing on fire.. which is NOT GOOD.

Any ideas?
 
Hang it on the doorknob and take a hot steamy shower with the door closed?

I just finished making a yarn-tail of my own today.
If it's the good kind of yarn (i.e. I Love This Yarn, Simply Soft) you can try two ways.

1) Make sure it's completely combed out and untangled, then use a straightening iron to un-kink it.

2) If you don't have a straightening iron, just grab a hair dryer, set it on high heat, and veeery gently comb it with a soft brush.

Inspiration.
