A few photos of my girls & now boys included!
Ooo, the rose is gorgeous! Bea's outfit is really fancy. And Finn looks like "When are you going to make something for me?"

Or is it wool yarn, and is the example in this photo a cotton yarn that has been treated or manufactured to perform more like wool? (I apologize for my colossal ignorance when it comes to textiles)

Here any type of string you knit/crochet with is referred to as wool, especially with “older” people, regardless of what it’s made of.
It leads to funny conversations at my knitting groups.
“What wool are you knitting that thing with?”
“It’s a lovely silk/merino blend.” Or “it’s bamboo/linen/cotton” - the first does contain wool but the second doesn’t.

I try to remember that it’s referred to as yarn on the international knitting forum I belong to because I get tired of rude nit-pickers who tell me I’m wrong or ignorant for calling it wool.
(They then generally trip up by calling any fibre from an animal wool. This is incorrect, only fibre from sheep is wool, other animal fibres are called other things. They also take people to task for spelling things “wrong”, failing to realise it’s not just people from their part of America posting on the forum, and different parts of the world spell/refer to things differently)
You weren’t rude in asking a genuine question about it smile smile it’s just tripped my rant button.

I suspected that might be the case by the way you've used the term. That is quite interesting. I had never heard that before. Now I know a little bit more about how to get by Down Under! One never knows what may come up in conversation.
They're not dolls, they're action figures!

Yes it is!  I thought the gold would work better with most of the family, and it can fit into the steampunk sub-family if I wanted to add members temporarily.

I have to fix the hat up still, it’s flat from being packed up, it’s so cute though.

Your dolls are so cute. I just love little Finn with his clockwork ears!

That rose is absolutely gorgeous, and I'm glad you were able to rescue it from that opossum!
