Doll hair   

   doll wig 

   mohair weft 

fiber  for spinning or doll hair 

    mohair 

    wool 

     silk 

wool skins for doll hair and craft    

    Icelandic sheepskin 

    Tibetan lambskin

doll hair dye - dyeing supplies  - acid dye for wool and mohair

the categories can be downloaded for searching here --
https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/160081

for google_product_category there may not be an exact match;
if so, simply use the highest-level value that best categorizes
the physical item; e.g.

Toys & Games > Toys > Dolls, Playsets & Toy Figures > Doll & Action Figure Accessories

or simply

Toys & Games

 

then, use the product_type attribute to submit a more granular,

exact, value, of your own taxonomy, with proper > breadcrumbs.

 

google_product_category and product_type attributes are mainly to assign

a taxonomy value related to the physical item; similar to aisles in a store --

but both may also be used to sub-divide products into groups. for bidding

strategies within adwords.
