Spin your dog's hair into a keepsake of lasting sentimental value
I spin dog hair (and cat hair) into beautiful yarn and create unique hand spun products of lasting sentimental value. Yarn spun from dog hair is also known as Chiengora, chien the French for dog and gora comes from Angora, a soft rabbit fur. Chiengora fabric has a fullness and halo effect - soft and luxurious.
Spinning dog hair is not a new art form. Dog hair has been found in yarns dating back from pre-historic Scandinavia, and in textiles from Navajo Indians of North America. It was the main fibre spun on the Northern American continent before the Spaniards introduced sheep. In modern times it is rarely used, in general it is only used by hand spinners with pet dogs.
By spinning your dog's hair let me create for you a unique keepsake that will have lasting sentimental value.
