So you decided you would like your pet's fur made into yarn.
When you start collecting the fur, try and remove any guard
hairs (stiff, longer, hairs). These hairs will stick out from
the yarn and could be scratchy. Store the fur in a paper bag
(fold top over) in a dry place. On occasion, push down on the
fur to get rid of extra air space. Depending on what you want
to use the yarn for, will determine how much fur to send in.
For example, a hat (depending on stitch) can need anywhere from
6-9 ounces of yarn.
first decision is whether you would like a 2ply or 3 ply yarn.
My suggestion is that if your pet's fur is on the short side,
go with the 3 ply. This will give you a stronger yarn. If your
pet's fur is over 2" long, you could go with the 2 ply
for a sporty style yarn.
Here is an example of Siberian
Husky yarn, 2 ply on the left and 3 ply on the right. The
3 ply yarn has a more round, full shape in my opinion.
This is approximately
3 ounces of Red/White Siberian Husky yarn, 3 ply.
