Crafting with Cat Hair

Recommended Posts

ILoveJellybeans

Im a bit of a crazy cat lady and my dad bought me a book called Crafting with Cat Hair.

 

Anyone who says I have too many cats will receive home made, organically sourced Mittens mittens for Christmas next year.

I am both grossed out and cracking up.  Enjoy your new hobby!  Can't want to hear next year's report.

Season of life...

Is this the book that has a little felt finger puppet made from cat hair on the cover? Is a cat sitting next to it, looking proud at his contribution to the craft?

I have to admit I was tempted by this book, but I wouldn't actually craft from cat hair, no. Seriously, I wouldn't. Never has crossed my mind. :kitty-shifty:

Try chow chow hair. It is very abundant when they get brushed, Really it is a thing. Not my thing but a thing.

Well if you ever need some strands of long white cat hair, or long brown, or cream, let me know. My ragdoll always has a few bales to spare, and leaves strands of them on the FURniture, the floor, anywhere really.

I think that is a great way of being resourceful and using fur to make something creative and unique.

Years ago I saw something on making sweaters from pet fur.

Knitters have been spinning yarn from dog hair for quite a while.  Some dogs shed so much.  Our Labrador used to blow her coat several times a year.  My daughter would pluck shopping bags full of Lab fur off her.  I don't see what's the difference between dog or cat hair and lamb's wool.
