So last night, as I was knitting, I had a brilliant idea - why don't I spin my puppies fur to make yarn??? Of course, that requires learning how to spin first. The engineer in me made me started to do some research online when I woke up this "morning", and I came across this wonderful site on how to spin dog hair into yarn - Chiengora Chic! So you would ask, what's a Chiengora (pronounced she-an-gora)? Well, apparently that's the name for dog hair yarn! Her site was full of info on what it is, what you need to do, how can you do it, etc. I am so inspired that I am going to start saving Bruno, Mick and Vanilla's undercoat after I brush them. Maybe, just maybe, I will get enough of dog hair to make me some soft and warm garments!
