A few days ago on Instagram, I posted this photo of my long-haired cat, Walter:
That’s just from brushing one side of his belly for a few minutes (he hasn’t been grooming his sides as well as he should). I was surprised by the amount of fur and how nice and soft it was.
Alert reader Charles pointed out on Instagram that there’s a service called Knit Your Dog where you can put all that pet fur to use. You simply “harvest” hair from your dog, send it to the website, and they turn it into yarn (and then into an accessory of your choice).
I’m not sure if Walter has enough hair to make this possible or if I would wear something made out of his hair, but the idea of Knit Your Dog made me smile. Walter could finally earn his keep!
Would you ever use a service like Knit Your Dog? What Walter-fur garment would you wear?
