Knitting a Sweater From Your Dog’s Shed Hair

The cozy sweater pictured above is made using Great Pyrenees dog hair for the sweater and the brown dog design is made from home-spun Newfoundland yarn!

It’s fun to dress your dog up in clothes that match your own. But, have you ever tried dressing yourself up to match your dog’s natural coat?

Kendall Crolius, author of the bestselling book, “Knitting With Dog Hair,” makes gloves, hats, and sweaters with leftover hair from her very own Golden Retriever. In the video below, watch just how easy it is to turn those piles of loose dog hair clogging up your air filters and piling up under the bed into a wearable work of art!

    Nothing new about this, I have a jacket made from 100% Pyrenean Mountain dog and Keeshond fleece that’s at least 34 years old and still looking good! I still spin too!

    I have knitted ski hats from Newfoundland hair and they were beautiful, BUT smelled like a wet dog when they got wet. 🙂

      Dear Ms.Wallin

      Keeshond fleece is one of the very few breeds that don’t emmenate “dog” when wet.
