This is great!!!
I have found a page on how to make Dog Yarn!
Not only that,it tells me that the Indigenous folks of North America used to do this way back before the Spainiards introduced Sheep for the wool...I
never knew that,nor that the yarn of a dog is up to 80% warmer than sheep wool!!
And finally,the page states that you need dog hair of at least 2inches in length to make workable yarn-so I measured some from my Bud,and he makes the
grade at mostly over 2.5inches!
I am getting right on this,I have already found the parts to make a spindle,and I reckon I can also make the brushes for aligning the hairs prior to
Cleaning seems easy enough as well.
I am actually quite peeved that I have given so much of the sheddings to the birds now-I could have had a suit,hat,blankets etc If I had pursued this
earlier(and i have thought about it years back,just never looked into it).
Oh well,I am on it from now on,and shall make a thread when it all starts happening.
