    DIY dog hair UQ

    I Literaly just brushed off 5 pounds of dog hair and I was joking with my dad about how I could make a dang blanket out of all the hair. but my hammock mind said UQ. now this is totally a joke haha but that would be wild if someone did because myhuskey sheds like a wolf.

    It's been done. My wife knew someone who kept her poodle clippings and knit sweaters. Animal fur has been felted for centuries and used for all kinds of things. I suspect though the weight to warmth ration of dog fur is somewhat less advantageous than down.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    There's a lady online somewhere that ran a website several years back that did this.

    You use the special brushes the comb out the under layer of fur on a dog with two layers and send it to her. She does something to deodorize it and turns it into yarn for you.

    Sort of neat, sort of creepy.

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.
