Cat Hair Yarn

You might remember that in my last post I mentioned making my sister some yarn out of the cat hair she’d collected from brushing her cats. I thought we didn’t have any pictures of it, but when Dean started showing me the pictures taken last weekend there were quite a few that he’d taken of it. These are the two that I liked.
Cat Yarn
Cat Yarn Two

Most of this came from the same cat, though with 5 of them and a dog around I’m sure there are bits of all of them in it.

The star of today’s post: ROSS (and Stephanie’s legs)

    That. Is. Awesome.

    Did you spin it with a wheel or a drop spindle? Now I’m wondering if I should try my kitty; she’s all white and her fur is about the same length as the angora I have in my stash. 😀

    How difficult is it to spin cat hair? I have three cats, but only one of them is a long-hair…and he’s an orange tabby.

    that’s either really awesome, or kinda gross…

    Yeah, I know. I’m leaning towards awesome.

    I keep trying to talk my sister into knitting the dog a sweater out of it. I’d pay to see the dog trying to figure out why he can’t get the cat smell to go away.

    It’s evil, I know, but I love confusing the dog.

    The yarn was surprisingly strong, the other kitty liked playing with it a lot

    Cats seem to like things made out of animal hair. I have a hat with mohair and alpaca in it… wiggy hugs and grooms it

    Woah, that’s pretty darn cool. Although, all I can think is if there was a piece of clothing made out of that yarn, I would be dying of allergies within seconds lol.
