I never expected to link to a video from Vice, but:
I realize this video might gross many of you out, but I am fascinated by people who view waste as a raw material. As the owner of two dogs I’m constantly dealing with shedding, and the thought that their cast-off fur could actually be turned into something useful is alluring.
A Connecticut-based needleworker named Kendall Crolius, author of Knitting With Dog Hair, shows how she can turn dog fur into hypoallergenic yarn.
FWIW, I don’t think there’s anything here to be “grossed out” about.
And I’d love to see someone do something with this for the Uncollection!
Awesome win-win solution to the problem of dog hair all over the house, no doubt. Now, just where do I get the machine to spin the yarn?! I really want to do this! :)Source: core77.com
