hair of the dog. sweaters.



i personally hate the word "upcycle" but i think it's really appropriate in this case... spinning yarn and knitting sweaters from your pet's hair.  i used to keep the hair from my persian and himalayan cat... but my sister tried to spin it, and i think the fibers were too short... or maybe we just weren't doing it correctly...  full instructions available on the original post... also a nice memory to have if your dog is dead...   (via if it's hip it's here)

  1. I see where you're coming from with this idea, but I can think of better ways to remember your dog rather than turning his hair into sweaters. They do look soft and warm though. And I guess it's better than stuffing your pet, but it's still a little weird.
