Wally wool

Ever since I started spinning, my dad has joked that I should spin yarn from his dog, Wally. Last time I went to their house they had a particularly large amount of hair in a pile after a good brushing. Never one to turn down a challenge, I took it home and went to work.

Here it is on my wheel.

It is actually amazingly soft. It reminds me of angora, actually.

Do you want me to send you some of Chubs' hair. You could start a new project. You could sell your mini sweaters at the farmers market. :)

Golden Retriever is crazy soft. And there's a reason they call it Chiengora.
