   doll wig 

   mohair weft 

fiber  for spinning or doll hair 

    mohair 

    wool 

     silk 

wool skins for doll hair and craft    

    Icelandic sheepskin 

    Tibetan lambskin

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.
