Hair of a Dog

There was some discussion at work about knitting from dog's hair which lead us to a French person who will spin your dog's hair into wool for €11 per 50g ball.

Here's another site with some items knitted from this wool, next to the dog whose fur it was.

For some reason I can't quite fathom, some people find it disgusting. I'm not sure why. I mean, if I were talking about roast suckling pug, fair enough, but just the wool? Where's the beef?

I guess it depends on the breed. I could imagine that some dog hair is rubbish for being spun into wool but if that works, there are enough dogs out there that could do with a trim...

If I combed the bathroom carpet I could probably get at least a jumper a year from you. And get over the pug thing! Just...get over it!!!!
