    I use poodle hair for tying nymphs for fly fishing. I take a body feather from a quail for the tail, dark or light poodle hair spun around the thread, another quail feather for the gills and legs spun around the top of the hook and presto! Some I wrap with lead for a quick sink, some not. Works wonderfully!

    This is my buddy


    They tell me he's a Husky/Shepard mix. Alls I know is come late spring there's this light colored fir that starts coming out of his black AND I still have left overs of it from the year before last let alone this year.

    I don't think he smells but I've probably just gotten used to it.

    husky hair - ugh! It intermittently mucks up the fridge coils in spite of my best efforts. there are people who spin dog hair into yarn and use it for garments. the product is called chiengora, I believe. http://chiengorafibers.com/

    I have a golden that sheds everywhere. Didn't think about using her hair for insulation. I got so tired of the shedding, I had her shaved.

    If you compost, did you know that hair of any kind is a good thing to add to your compost?

    We do a little composting, easy when you have two donkeys.
    Everything we read groups stuff into "brown" or "green" categories. Do you know which hair would fall into? Come spring, there will be LOTS of donkey hair!

    Some poo is great for compost... but I've read that dog & cat poo has some pathogens or something that you do not want to be putting in your compost. Not compost to be used on the garden anyway I'll have to find my compost book & look that up

    Sorry to the OP.... back to dog hair for insulation now
