Had to try this, hand spinning dog fur into a scarf. The drop spindle is made from a drum stick and some scrap wood I had cut into a circle for an old abandoned project. I find if I soak the finished project in a 2 part warm water and 1 part vinegar for about 30min, then just set in the sun to dry, with no rinsing you no longer smell the dog. Of course don't use vinegar on your own dog it could irritate the heck out them. My husband now wants me to make a dog sweater for our wiener dog out of dog fur lol.
