We'll be having our Chow sheared for the summer soon, and I thought about asking the groomer to return the hair to me. However, we've been very lax about keeping him brushed this winter , and since he's spent most of his time outdoors ('cept for night when he comes in to guard his humans), his hair is matted and not so pretty right now.

PS-Lu, what a neat worthwhile project, and the dogs in your pics are adorable.

And, Kemp, that dog is one of the most beautiful that I've ever seen!

Let us know how that goes........and needless to say if anyone has spun dog hair which they don't need, I'd love to have it for the rescue auction.

Thanks again everyone! He is such a joy. I always think it's funny that people have no poblem wearing stuff made from stinky ol' sheep but think it's weird to have yarn from someone who hangs out on the couch with you every night.

I know VIP got my fiber package, now it just a matter of waiting!

I've heard that dog yarn will always smell like wet dog when it's damp, and if I go by my dogs, that's not a good thing. And you're right about the stinky sheep. I have a few sheep, and they're known collectively as "The Stinky Girls".

I haven't spun my dogs hair yet, but I'm collecting to do just that. The way she is shedding it won't be much longer before I have enough to spinn a sample to see how I like it.
She is pictured to the left. She has a really pretty creamy red color.
Have a great day!
