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.
