trying to get a floaty "scarf in the wind" effect.

I made a scarf like a bridge in the example programs (List of bodies), but it looks 'heavy'.
What I mean is that it swings around with a lot of weight.

I tried changing the density of the pieces in the scarf, but that only changes the pull they have.
Turning off gravity for it just looks silly as soon as my character stops moving ( launches forwards and twirls on itself).

I don't know if anybody has an idea on how to make the scarf feel light, and let it hover behind my character.

Thank you.

Use a low density on the shapes that makes up the scarf.

I tried that, but it makes no changes to way it swings.
It only makes the scarf have less pull on the player.

I guess you can't really give a shape air resistance.
