    Gotta love 'em. Everything I own is covered in Aussie hair. It was bad when I just had one. With two, it's hilarious. I have to vacuum and brush daily or I'd be swimming in dog hair in no time.

    When I had dogs with a thick undercoat I thought of the same idea but abandoned it once I started working with the stuff. I found that it matted like crazy, just like on the dog if not brushed constantly. It might be worth experimenting with. But I don't think I would invest the time and energy into making a big project with it until I got some smaller prototypes made to see how the loft would react. YMMV.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Go to your local dog grooming shop and ask for a day or two's worth of "brushed" fur.
    Once they're done laughing hysterically, tell them your serious and will return in two days. Should be enough to experiment with.
    If it doesn't work out, throw out the donated fur.

    Now if y'all will find a use for the wife's and two girls hair..other than a drain clogger.

    Please, you folks don't know nothin about dealing with animal hair. I've seen clumps of my donkeys' shed fur take out flying birds as it drifts through the air. No I haven't, but it sounds funny.

    Somewhere out there on the world wide web is a woman that makes clothing for people using their pet's hair. Sweaters, scarfs, socks, you name it! All I could think when reading that story a couple of years back was: ewwwww! But, iffn you're serious, you might want to see if you can find her. Maybe she will wash the stuff for you and return it raw. I bet she's got the washing down to a science and it isn't something I'd want to do if somebody else was willing to do it for me.

    I'm thinking of any residual odor from the fur being washed out.
