Are you one of those people who loves their dog so much, they can’t make themselves to throw away their hair after a good brushing? Are you those little puff balls pilling up and you are starting to wonder – what could be done from it?
Your pet hair can be custom hand spun for you, in color, thickness and quantity of your choice. And the best part – it will look so pretty!
In addition to adding merino wool (or any other fibers!) , I can also add recycled yarn bits to create unique, speckled look. The recycled yarn used for these skeins comes from various knitting, crocheting and other fiber crafts and is donated to me as a waste. Please read more about yarn recycling I do in the ABOUT section of this website.
Due to recycled and hand dyed nature of some of the yarn ingredients, it is impossible to reproduce same colors and textures that are found in this yarn, thus making it a truly unique, hand spun piece of art. It is still possible to make somewhat matching skeins of yarn, which, at the end, would make a project made from this yarn, a cohesive piece. All the skeins made for the same order will be matching and almost the same.
This yarn spun as a single, which means that it is less sturdy than plied yarn, therefore it is not recommended to be used for socks or other knits that are meant to be heavier duty. If you want to use yarn made from your pet hair for socks, please let me know – we will work the details out on email firstname.lastname@example.org
This yarn is custom spun on a spinning wheel and comes in 75 g. skeins (perfect size for a hat).
Due to recycled and custom hand carded nature of the yarn, it is impossible to predict how the finished result will look, before it is made, but I will be happy to spin a small sample upon request.
Be aware, that depending on the size of your order, it would take 1 to 3 weeks to implement and ship out your order.
For any discounts, inquiries and/or orders please do not hesitate to contact Aliona on email@example.com

Hand spun yarn has a tendency to felt a little when washed. This means, that whatever you make from it, might shrink a little and the texture will be slightly different after washing.
Dog hair yarn might shed a bit, but it is normal and unless heavily mechanically damaged, it should not affect quality of the yarn/ finished garment.
To avoid felting and/or damage to the item made using this yarn, please hand wash in a 30 degree water with a detergent suitable for wool. Do not wring. Dry flat.
