2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I've thought about it but it's expensive. This is one of the websites I found:

http://vipfibers.com/

It's quite popular because if you look at the spin calendar, they're backlogged until June!

My moms parents bred Newfoundlands and I think she mentioned something about them doing this themselves. She said it was soft and nice but when it got wet it sure did smell like wet dog.

I've considered doing this too. I don't think I'd care if it smelled a little like dog, it would be a nice reminder of them, especially if something happened to them. I'd expect it to smell some when wet, just like wool doesn't smell lovely when wet either. I just don't know if I could justify the expense of it, lol. Maybe we should stuff a pillow with husky fur?

One of the owners here was going to stuff a dog bed with her huskies fur in hopes he wouldn't chew it up if she did.

It's not really that strange of a question. Scandinavian countries spun dog fur before sheep were ever introduced. Cheingora (dog fur yarn) is super soft (depending on which breed it comes from, our sled dogs make really soft yarn) and 80% warmer than wool because of the hollow structure.

Those places are expensive, find a local fiber club and I bet someone in it has done it and will do it for cheaper.

Properly washed it won't have a dog smell, even when wet, just like wool doesn't smell like sheep. Also, people allergic to dog won't react, again assuming its washed.

The process is quite simple, collect, wash, card (image two slicker brushes back and forth) to align the fibers, and then spin.

We're collecting Appas fur this coat blow so my wife can spin it. We spun some up by hand (not with a wheel, but twisting with our fingers) as a little tester awhile ago. http://instagram.com/p/S9aJbivXl2/

This is so cool and awesome!

I wanted to do this too but I thought I was the only one, LOL! Our puppy won't even blow his coat any time soon... but when he does... Twisted Evil

I want to make this out of his fur (since it, too, is white): https://spirithoods.com/adults/womens/huskyplaid/916/
