Doll makers...question about tibetan lambskin hair!

I'm making my dd a Waldorf style doll for her bday in April and plan to use the tibetan lambskin for hair. First of all, where do you recommend I buy it and secondly, how do I attach it to the head? I'm just a little confused because I don't know if I should make a form fitting wig first then stitch it down or do I attach it flat...does that make sense? Also, how do you sew it down in areas other than the edges? Any help is greatly appreciated

I'm not completely positive as I haven't done it yet myself, but from a few things I've seen on other dolls they made a wig. I know you can buy a pattern for making the wig on etsy, perhaps that would be your best bet if you're new to making dolls?
