Custum spun/knitted dog hair scarf

Good day to all! I'd like to share a photo of a scarf that I was commissioned to make. The owner used to show Afgan Hounds. One of her show dogs came down with cancer. Like us, he lost his hair from chemo. She ended up loosing him. She saved his hair, hoping to someday be able to do something with it. So when we met, I offered to make this scarf for her. Rather than card the enitire bag of hair together, I spun from the locks. This created the variety of color throughout. When I presented it to her this way, she cried! She said she could tell from each color just where it came from on her dog and had I blended it all on the drum carder, it would end up one solid color.
I've taken awards with my handspun yarns including best 100% angora rabbit and Best Yarn of Show!
I can spin any pet hair as long as it is 2" in length. Other spinners will spin shorter hair, but it will shed. If you want your pet hair that is shorter than 2" spun, go to another spinner. I wash the skien when done, measure the yardage and charge by the ounce. I can also wind your skiens into center pull balls, making knitting/crocheting easier.
I also have angora bunny yarn available at all times in natural and dyed colors. I also spin and hand paint yarns, so watch for other postings on my hand painted yarns!
