Don’t broom that dog hair — Yarn it!

April 14, 2017

Well, we’d heard of animal fiber originating from sheep, goats and even silk worms. What we had no clue about, was that you could also convert your dog’s hair into extremely soft yarn!

Yup, that seasonal mess of shed hair does not necessarily belong in the dustbin. Instead of sweeping it away every morning under the broom, you could collect it and use it to spin extremely soft yarn. Who knew?

Here’s a video of Yeshi, explaining how its done, with the use of a Turkish spindle.

So there you have it! Winter will arrive before you know it so, start spinnin’ !
