All this talk about collecting hair makes me wonder if I would be able to spin my puppy's hair.
Yes you can! I've been collecting Kodi's hair for about a year. I actually have two bags... a white hair bag and a black hair bag. I've been told by friends who spin their dog's hair, that you need about a well-packed gallon bag to produce enough yarn to make anything of significance. I've got a REALLY well-packed quart of white hair, and about a 1/4 of a quart of black. I think the black will be for trim!<g>
It takes a long time with a single Hav. My friends who actually knit with their dogs' hair have Huskies, and they can get get plenty of coat in a couple of weeks to fill a gallon bag!!!
Sorry! I thought it was a new thread too!
