Thanks for sharing this. I think it is interesting to read other people's lists, so I decided to participate too.

So interesting! Actually, knitting with dog hair is a lot less gross than it sounds. A friend of mind spun a whole bunch of her (husky) dog's hair and it made a beautiful yarn with an almost angora quality to it. It apparently knits up beautifully into a very warm garment. Plus, you can wash it, and it won't smell like the dog!
