As I mentioned in a previous post about a book I bought about Crafting With Cat Hair, I found some more ideas about making things with your pets' hair. There is a France based business, Dog Wool, that will make items of clothing from your dogs hair. I love it - don't find it repulsive at all.
This necklace is from an etsy seller, Flora Davis, that will make jewelry from your cats' hair.
A quote from an instruction book says it best, "Better a sweater from a dog you love than from a sheep you'll never meet."
