Canine Couture: Sweaters Made From Your Dog’s Hair [9 Pics]

Clothes Made From Pet Hair

If I suddenly start wearing a sweater made from my dog’s hair, does that mean I’m going to get the urge to chase cars and growl at the neighbors? What about wearing it in the rain? Will it make me smell like a wet dog? If I wear it in the backyard, will I get fleas? Did you know dog hair can be turned into a type of yarn? Yeah, I just have so many questions about this.

I have a big mutt, and he’s a cool dog, but I just don’t know if I would want to wear him. Does that make me a bad owner? I get it that we should reuse our resources, but does dog hair that ends up in the dog brush or on the floor count as a resource or is that just disgusting trash? I guess it depends on how you look at it.

From a concept point of view, this isn’t all that strange. People have been doing this for years. A while back I wrote an article called Custom Hairball Jewelry Made From Your Pet’s Hair. Apparently making these sweaters is a very labor-intensive process, and it takes about six months to collect enough hair to make one sweater. I suppose there are people out there who might like to wear clothes made from other people’s dogs. Well, you can do that too. The website Jolly Fellows sells all kinds of stuff like sweaters, gloves, scarves and other clothes all made from dog hair. I have to stop writing about this now; I’m about to gag.
