Can you make wool from cat fur?
My brother in law has two long hair cats that they regularly brush. He has taken up collecting it and now has a relatively large sack of hair. Is it possible to make it into wool so that it can be used to make something? is there anyone that offers that service?
asked in cats, knitting

Te cat shearers have been at it again!

I have a birman, and I use her fur for dubbing when I tie flies. It's the same principle as spinning, so I don't see why not. I think it's just not commercially viable.

yes there is no reason why you couldn't and for that matter I know someone who's trait was to add a bit of hair from her pets (a cat and and the dogs) into her wool when spinning.

I say "was" because she sadly doesn't manage to do much spinning these days, but hopefully she might teach me later in the year if she is up to it :O)

This site tells you how

It is possible to spin any type of fibre or hair into yarn.
