I will spin your dog's or cat's brushed undercoat into beautiful yarn suitable for knitting, crocheting, or weaving.
On receipt, fur is carded and spun into singles, plied on itself or with other fiber, skeined, and washed to set the twist. Short fur can be carded with another longer fiber prior to spinning. The cost of any added fiber is added to the cost of the finished yarn at $2.00 per ounce. When spinning is complete and the yarn is dry, it is weighed to calculate the final cost which is $12 per ounce (plus the cost of any added fiber).
Please contact me so that I can set up a custom listing for you. Please do not purchase this listing as it is here just to let customers understand the process. Please contact me for mailing instructions for your pet’s fur. Let me know if you have any questions regarding your pet's fur, amount of fur to collect, etc. Please allow up to 4 weeks for completion of your yarn.
Photos include: cat and dog yarn drying, "sheep dog" yarn i.e. wool and dog fur plied together, my cat checking out a fresh skein of chiengora, cat fur carded into rolags, and cat fur on the bobbin.
We got our Alaskan Malamute's fur spun into yarn, and it is just beautiful. Nancy communicated every step of the way to make sure everything was done as we desired (weight of the yarn, total amount to spin, etc.). The price is very reasonable, and turnaround time was much faster than I expected!
