Blog: Hair of the dog

Joe Ayling | 19 March 2008

The idea of spinning dog hair into woolly jumpers is a new one to me, but a couple from the UK have managed to pioneer this pet-preserving process.

According to a story by the BBC, Beth and Brian Willis from Newcastle spent time collecting hair shed onto the carpet by their white Samoyed and Swedish Lapphund, before sending it off to be spun.

The dogs have since past away, but their fur lives on through a pair of jumpers fit for the panto.

It brings a whole new meaning to the expression barking mad alright.
