I was checking out the ' I Want It Now ' posts on Ebay earlier today and there was a person wanting to buy dog and cat hair ( from grooming or shedding ).
I don't imagine the buyer would pay big bucks or if it's on the level but anyone interested could find out.
I wonder why they don't just go to a groomer and get it.
Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe. Sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow.
Wow, do ya suppose? I coulda given them a bushel of dog hair a few days ago, as DH and I gave one of our dogs their spring cut. There would have been enough to make a whole new dog with it. Wonder if this item is for real?
You may as well eat the devil as sip at his broth.
I was initially really grossed out by the concept of wearing dog hair, but knitted up some socks out of white maltese. They are the warmest & most durable things I've ever worn! And really, they don't smell doggy after you've washed em But even after a hundred washings, fido still goes ballistic when I wear them...
Dog yarn is called Chengora (check the spelling though...) and you CAN do it with shorter fur (but not SHORT), but it has to be mixed with long fur for it to hold...otherwise it won't be strong enough to do anything with.

Chiengora - it's fun. The spitz breeds (Husky, Samoyed, Malamute, Chow, Eskie, etc) tend to have the most widely used coats, but any hair of a reasonable length can be spun. I send my white collie's brushed out undercoat to a friend. It has to be reasonable clean and in good shape to be worth spinning, and clipped-off hair doesn't work as well as pure undercoat (brushed out) but can still sort of be spun- it depends on texture and folks who are better spinners than I could probably do better with it.
