I cannot help but be somewhat disturbed by something I learned from a knitting website.
Apparently, you can knit with dog hair.
Yes, people have made whole sweaters with their pet's hair.
I'm not so much interested in the "how-to" than I am in the "why-would-you-want-to".
I suppose you can argue that it's the same as wearing stuff made from sheep's wool, but somehow, it's different.
Is it simply because we're just so used to one form of yarn, and not the other?
I don't know, but my nose crinkles at the thought of it...
The Knitting With Dog Hair book has a rather funny subtitle though - "Better A Sweater From A Dog You Know and Love Than From A Sheep You'll Never Meet."
