Drive by Blogging

The Fuzz Bucket got a bath this weekend and in typical Golden Retriever style, he started shedding like crazy once he was all dry. I was hoping and expecting this so I was ready with a comb. There's still some more fuzz to comb out, but I've gotten a lot of clean, fluffy, creamy white undercoat out of him. Mickael thinks it looks like Tribbles.

I've got a good amount of Bear dog undercoat (he was never on the blog) blended with merino and silk upstairs in my spinning stash and even a small bag of Finn undercoat from his puppy days. Finn didn't have an undercoat as an adult so I really only have that tiny bit of fluff from him. Logan looks to be quite the fur-bearing critter and having such a creamy white undercoat will make blending it really easy!

A lot of people like spinning dog hair but I've never heard of mixing it with other fibers except wool. That should make really soft warm yarn.

And, of course fur combed out is fur that is not shed. 'Nuff said!

I've got 2 black dogs and beige everything. I feel your pain! Try the Furminator...its *really* good at getting out hair, only taking the "shed" hair not the attached hair.
