    Wow, I do not know what to think of this. But, I guess no one can get angry at you for wearing a fur coat and it is probably really warm! Does it smell funny?

    Thank you for the great post!

    What about cat fur?

  4. Eleonora ten Brink

    Cat fur too can be done into sweaters, but has to be mixed, like with cotton or wool.

    thanks for all the great info on dog hair yarn making!
    ! am saving my Beau’s hair now to do this. He is an Austrailian Red Heeler (also called a ‘Queensland Biter’ from the old country) and has beautiful red hair. i plan to make a sweater for my other dog Penney the Mountain Feist. She has short hair and could use a warm Beau-hair sweater for the PA winters.
    Great website!!

    Seems like a long process I would go to the vet and ask for shaved hair.
