Wow, this is GORGEOUS.
How did you get the gradation working there? I've tried something similar with an gift tail, but it didn't quite turn out like I wanted, being more patchy than gradiated. Any pointers for an amateur?

Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but I've seen brushes specifically designed to separate and then re-merge fibers like yarn back together. I would imagine that's what they have here

The tool is at almost any craft store and they're cheap... I think under $10?

Don't quote me, but I believe so. ^,...^

I'll have to look around and see if that's actually a thing. If it is, I'll definitely give it a go, I have a couple tails I've been wanting to make that I've been sitting on for fear of utterly ruining them with a lack of tools and experience. ^^;

Well, if you can't find the tool I can definitely get one for you if you want.

Is there a specific brand name, or any other reference I can refer to? It's hard to find something you don't even know the name of.

Oh! Carding tools!
I think those are more for felting purposes, but I can see how it woul work to help blend different fibers together.

This is by FAR the best tail I've ever seen. I'm at a loss for words that this is made out of yarn! The colors are so beautifully blended. How long is this one? Do you make them all the same length?

It's really simple to make a tail out of yarn, actually. And it's pretty spot on for a red fox. x3

Actually, Ive been meaning to find a good tutorial. Color wise, its farely acurate, but it would be rather difficult to find yarn in the correct shades. real tails are build quite differently, and the fur wouldn't hang down much, if at all. They are quite sturdier, i have a few and they are more than a fuckload of fluffyness. Constructionally, this tail is more akin to that of a dog(I can't remember the breed), but all the same, this is still a gorgeous tail!
