However this post in the L.A. Times is very cool!http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/home_blog/2009/07/pet-yarn-chic-and-the-critter-knitter-guild-give-a-whole-new-meaning-to-dog-blanket.html#more-critter-knitter-guild-give-a-whole-new-meaning-to-dog-blanket.html#more
Just think, this lovely Duchese Brise photographed in Paris is covered in mohair.....perhaps upholstering it in dog hair would solve a lot of our cleaning problems...many fine Persian rugs are woven in goat hair and camel hair, why not a dog hair rug?
Perhaps dog hair could be a substitute for cashmere,after all, cashmere has to be combed out of the goat by hand too, that is why it is so expensive. I can't imagine looking in my closet and trying to decide if I will wear Akita hair or Briard...I wonder would the clothes smell like dog when they got wet?
Well it would be a great way to recycle...
...anyway, it seems we now have an important reason to save the hair our dogs shed....we can sell it to craft people!
