Why not recycle dog fur!!!!
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.

I really could not believe how strong the actual yarn is when it is just single ply.

I did a little research on it before I started nd it can actually be 40% to 60% warmer than wool. After working with the fur I really believe that. I am hoping to have it completed this weekend Happy

This is great!
I've heard dog hair yarn is actually even quite warm and durable. Happy
