Size (approx) length 12 - 14"
(30 - 35cm)
Dog hair required* 5oz (140gm)
Both dogs are approximately the same size, between 12 - 14 inches long (from the tip of the tail to the end of the paws) and use the same amount of dog hair 5 oz. The dogs are named after the dog whose fur was used in its making. Bella (floppy ears) was made from a Golden Retriever . Merlin (alert ears) was from a black and tan German Shepherd .
Although both dogs are approximately the same size, it will depend on the quality of the fur and how it spins. Characteristics will differ between each dog.
All you need to do is choose the style you want, I will try to make them look like the breed of dog you have (within reason!)
All dogs will have a leather name tag. Just let me know the name.

New addition for the cat lover who can save fur from medium - long haired breads. I will attempt different styles within reason.
*The amount of dog hair shown represents the weight of the raw fibre that you have to collect as a result of grooming your dog. The quantities shown for each product allows me to take into account variations in the quality of the raw fibre I receive and any wastage in the process of converting the raw fibre into yarn. As a helpful rule of thumb: 1 supermarket carrier bag (lightly packed) = approximately 8oz (225gm), but please weigh it to be sure.
