Hair of the Dog..

I saved Whimsy's hair from her brush and comb for about a year. I came up with about 5 ounces and mailed it to a woman in Canada that spun it into yarn and made me a scarf. It was the first time she worked with Havanese hair and said it was 'delightful to spin" and very soft. It is 6 inches by 60 inches. She is shipping it out to me tomorrow and I can hardly wait!
I will have to post a picture of me wearing it when I get it...Whimsy will want to be in the picture too I'm sure. I'm so glad I did this!!!

Wow, that's beautiful, but it couldn't be anything but beautiful if it came from Whimsy. Looking forward to seeing you model it, Evelyn. Great idea!

The scarf from her hair is beautiful - just like Whimsy!

The scarf is beautiful. I bet it is sooo soft and cuddly just like Whimsy. The fiber artist made a wonderful design in the scarf.
I'm saving Maggie's for one day.
Thanks for sharing,
Jeanne & Maggie

Just love this scarf. Can you share with me your contact in Canada. Also, does it matter how long the hair is you save.
