Has anyone seen the new announcement by Ibex here (http://shop.ibex.com/
)? They are going to start using dog hair fiber in their outdoor clothing. It's supposed to be 80% warmer than wool and have other great properties as well.
So here's another possible stacked function - LGDs that protect your livestock AND pay for their food with the proceeds of their undercoats
I have a beautiful, black Labradoodle-Husky who produces a huge quantity of shed fur. My first spinning lesson is this Saturday - hoping for a really warm black sweater by next winter...
Does anyone here have experience with dog hair fibers in clothing?
