Pet Hair Yarn

Indy's fur is so soft, it would make a luxurious yarn. In the past when I researched custom spinning services, I came across some people who would spin pet fur into yarn.

I thought this was strange at first, and you might too. But considering that yarn is made form sheep, rabbit, goat and alpaca hair, why would dog hair be any stranger?

Today I am going to focus on services that will spin your pet hair into yarn for you (note that they may have to make it a wool blend to complete your pet yarn. )
Now you need to make sure to keep your pet's fur clean and free of moths/other fiber eating insects. Many of the services will clean the fibers for you, but this may involve additional cost.

  1. Hey, i just have to say i love your designs and patterns. They are sooo cute! I'm about to endeavor upon the 10 hour afghan ^_^ When did you start knitting? As a teenager it's hard to find time to knit between work, school, and showing my face to my friends occasionally, but your vids on youtube have really helped me! Thanks

    Cheers

  2. I started knitting in the 5th grade (when I was 10.) I'm glad that my videos have helped you.

    Happy Knitting!
