I Need Moss

I am looking for MOSS but not just any moss. I don't want natural stuff I want fake.

As I have almost finished my story my mind is now turning to my models again. In particular my hanging houses.

In the past, as you can see above, I have used knitting wool. My problem is, of course, is that I can not find that wool anymore. With the amazing use of the Internet I was able to find three different wools/yarn that I thought would do the job but I couldn't buy them in Australia. I didn't want to buy stacks of the stuff from another country just in case it didn't work so I went looking for an alternative.
Hence I have found these:- (I apologise for the poor quality of the photos.)

      The first one is called Forest Moss from Commercial Silk a New Zealand firm. The problem I have is I only want one roll to see how it goes and I might have to buy bulk. I've decided against this as I have to buy $250.00 worth at a time and I've refused as I don't even know if it will do the job. I've asked if they could tell me where I could buy one roll but got no answer.
      The second roll comes from Life Like Plants Australia a company in Victoria. I will definitely be buying a roll of this as I 'can' buy just one roll to try it out. I've decided against this as (from other photos) it looks to wiry for me, not natural enough. I'm back to square one.

I thought I would just add this link to even though it has nothing to do with moss. I just LOVE the plants and when I can afford it I shall be buying some.
