My last post spurred a lot of interesting discussion, and a very good comment from Christine.
She's right. The eww factor is pretty irrational... . After all, sheep are much dirtier and smellier than your average dog.
(Ok, perhaps a certain cottage-going Goldendoodle of my acquaintance is the exception here, but she does get bathed regularly...)
Any yarn spun from dog hair is washed and treated exactly as sheep wool is, so that any leftover dander or scent or dogginess is entirely removed.
So what's the hang up?
It is a lovely way to make a canine keepsake, if you will. How many dog owners wish they could preserve something of a beloved family pet?
