Erwan Fichou has managed to capture owners wearing clothing made from their pets’ fur.

The fur was brushed and collected over time to generate enough of a yarn where it was then knitted into a sweater. I don’t think you will find me wearing one of these anytime soon. Would you wear your pet’s fur?

    The mittens I have from my old dog Sandy are phenomenally warm (and itchy – I have to wear glove liners underneath) so my hands are never cold when I wear them. I have brushings from my other dogs, but haven’t gotten around to spinning and knitting them up yet – I like the idea of having the physical connection to dogs I had so long ago. But I still know that some people are just plain grossed out by the concept.

    Clothes… Pah! I’ve a whole king sized bed blanket and matching cushions. 10 generations of hamsters is all it took. Will carpet my condo next – pube hair, 10 years worth from my beauty salon.

    These are lovely photos.
    Yes, dog fiber (aka – chiengora) tends to be very warm. I became interested in learning to spin because of the copious amounts of fiber my dogs provided me. I currently have two Great Pyrenees and a Bearded Collie and spin the under coat from them. I have also spun undercoat from other dogs and made up small items as mementos.

    Thank you! These are awesome! I spin so I see these as the labors of love they are. These people don’t care if they make any fashion five list, (though I can’t see why not! ;) They will have their beloved pet with them forever. I have BOXES of my Emma’s fur that I can’t bring myself to spin yet. I still cry when I try, but I will have her to hug again…one day. If you have a brush-able pet and yes, even cats, brush and bond with it and by all means, save that fluff! Find a spinner and go for it! Yes it’s warmer than wool but it can be blended with wool to lighten it up or make it go farther if you just have a bit of fur.

    I’ve had 3 sweaters and a hat since 1982 from my “heart dog”, a Keeshond named Gretchen. They are very comfortable as they cool if I get too warm but warm me up if I get cool. The spinner washed the yarn after spinning it with Joy. After 8 Kees in our lives, Gretchen still comforts me just as she did when she lived here.

    Not unless I wanted to roast. Dog fur is supposed to be insanely warm, to the point where you overheat if it’s above zero degrees.

    But honestly, if you have a dog that blows its coat regularly, it beats just throwing the stuff out.
