I was wondering if anybody here has any experience in spinning with dog hair.
I don’t know the first thing about spinning and thought maybe somebody here would like to experiment with some dog hair. I have read somewhere that you have to blend the hair with wool or other fiber half and half, because dog hair have no give in it when it is spun. I don’t know if this is accurate.
would be willing to send the hair anywhere and also include what ever fiber that is needed to blend.
I don’t necessarily need the wool back but would like to see pictures of the outcome.
I have just brushed him and have a carrier bag full of hair weighing 110grams.
It is the undercoat, which I think is supposed to be very warm as it is what protects them from the cold and icy condition.
Here are some pictures:
