Your sweater is so...furry

Well, it is an interesting concept, but um, disturbing, at the same time. The newest craze seems to be sweaters--made out of your pet.

If you love Fluffy, then you'd probably love to WEAR Fluffy too, right?

Ihabitots presents: Make a Sweater From Your Pet's Fur.
Danelle German, a professional cat groomer based in Simpsonville, S.C, was troubled by the large amounts of fur she would dispose of after grooming clients’ Persians and Angoras. Her solution? Spin the fur into yarn. Then you can knit the yarn into warm, cozy creations (cute little sweaters, mittens, hats, you name it). Can’t you just imagine grandma knitting your little one a sweater made from Mr. Buttons?

I personally think Emily C's cat (with fat little cheeks) would look quite nice as pair of mittons. And Emily W. could knit them. hahaha.


  1. haha....she looks very irritated.

  2. Sounds like you have it all figured out! You need to learn to knit and join a knitting club. You would have realized that is what has been going on for a long time. It is crazy though. Everyone in my club always talks about the percentage of what the material is made out of. I don't know if I would knit anything that comes from my dog. People have sheep as pets and sheep produce wool. It is kind of the same concept, I guess.
