If this goes well, I’m going to commission a dog sweater made out of pubic hair.
Wait, $80 for a gif? How much for a jpg?
I have a strange urge to scratch myself and chase squirrels.
“eliminate hair on the coach.”
why Do People capitalize all The wrong Words? as far As i am concerned, my Coach can eliminate His own hair, although he is using Rogaine, so I think he actually Does not want to Eliminate it.
….does it smell like a wet dog when it get’s wet?

#1 – just got it! Hah! makes a great gif!!! LOL
Yes, that’s part of the “lasting memory.”
The way my dog smells and rolls in the dirt I think I’ll skip this little offer ;P
Does she use cat hairballs? I think my cat can cough up a few for pom poms tho!
Does it freak anyone else out that she keeps using the term “process” ?
I think the crotch coat might be a better “gif”. Ha.
This is f’ing genius.
She charges $80 and YOU send her the supplies.
lots of fascinating grammar in the description beyond the entertaining capital letters… to whit: “Send me you’re Dogs Hair”
I crochet (‘but I’m not batshit crazy’ I find myself saying after that admission these days) and 4 ounces is only going to work if it is poodle or afghan or other long-staple fiber.
How the hell do you card black lab hair, and why am I asking this at this hour? (Because nine o’clock in the morning would be a better hour, because then the crazy people who live in the computer could answer back to me!)
Also, is that the hat OR the scarf?
This seems to me like it would put MORE hair on the couch, non?
Says she can help “eliminate hair on the coach”. I just hate hairy coaches don’t you? The humanity of it all!!
Bad grammar aside, she’s not the first one to do this. Lots of people have processed (washed, carded, spun into yarn, and then knit/crochet it into something) dog, cat and rabbit hair. There was even a woman on Dirty Jobs that made a sweater out of her own hair. It’s a lot of work, so she’s not making a killing on this when you factor in how long the entire process takes.
The only crime I see here is grammar that makes me want to slam my head into a wall.
oh holy crap it does say ‘coach’
I like a good hairy coach. Thanks though.
sadly I think a pube sweater would sell on etsy.
I would have sent her the misters hair but he finished shedding a few years ago and is bald now ~ Drat!
And how the fuck can you make dog hair into a scarf?? Obviously I don’t know how to *process* or I guess I would know the answer.
I know some people with arthritis who wear dog and rabbit fur mittens and socks. They swear it helps lower the pain. I don’t know why. But as long as it helps eliminate Hairy Coaches, I’m all for it!
Curiously, the seller seems to run a llama farm in upstate New York, so my guess is she “processes” your dog’s hair in a pipe and knits you some cheap ass llama cap, all for $80. The real question is, how high can you get smoking dog fur?
No, seriously,I know at least one of you knows, so tell us, how high?
#23 my guess is that she cards the dog hair with llama hair. That’s what most people who spin pet hair do.
AHHHHAHH! Thank you NinjaGato.
But – I’ve got a Chinese Crested………
If it weren’t eighty dollars and her capitalization wasn’t so off I’d buy one. Something to remember the Johns by.
@#28: that comment made me laugh out loud. thanks for that
As the owner of fish, I’ve got to say: EWWWWWWWWWWW!
That is just fucking gross, and wrong.
Could she make me a pair of leather gloves with my dead Sphyx cat?
before a read anything and really looked at the pic my first thought was “aw ITS A FERRET!” then i saw the word dog hair and looked at my dog, who was busy chewing on his ass… yea.. i really want that made into a hat
its normal for rabbit goats, camels, and all other animals to have shed hair washed and woven into yarn.. i draw the line on dogs
It does look warm.
My fat cat certainly sheds enough to make about 35 of these.
But I don’t think so.
As a spinner, I have always been repulsed by spinning dog hair. But I know plenty of people who do it.
But that photo! it looks like it was plugging up the tub drain.
Either that or a hairy diaphragm.
A hat? No thanks. I’m interested in a Husky merkin. Can you do that?
mmmmm a scarf that smells like dog…
what about cat hair? isn’t he/she/it discriminating against cats here?
After needing to trim my boss’s Portugese Water Dog, the fur was so soft and beautiful and like wool that I took some home, thinking I could do at least SOMETHING with it. And then after a few days I got repulsed, thought “wtf was I thinking” and threw it away.
Damn, apparently I threw away good money there.
husky dog merkin. awesome.
I spin too and do everything in my power to keep the dog hair OUT of my yarn!
Just what everyone needs: portable allergens that you wear near your face… If these became popular (and that’s a BIG if), Claritin sales would go through the roof!
Can I see this in a room?
what possesses people to capitalize all the wrong words? ….it takes a little bit of acknowledgement to reach over with a pinky finger or whoever and press the shift key…..I just don’t get it. what….the…heck….man?
Maybe my standards have fallen WAY low but I just like the fact that she has some talent. A lot of the stuff featured on here (not everything but most of it) is pretty talentless, effortless, crap. Animal hair is annoying and I would never consider it reusable so kudos to this artist for doing about the only thing you can do with it besides letting it clog your vacuum… it’s practical and looks good. That said, I wouldn’t pay $80 for ANY hat. Even this one.
And I doubt the hat would smell any more than any other item of fur clothing – jus sayin. I think the idea of having to make it is more gross than the final product. Kinda like thinking of a cow butcher shop while you look at your steak. Steak’s still yummy for all you carnivores out there, don’t lie!
#40 artistamuerta : ‘husky dog merkin’- didn’t he tour in the mid eighties?
does she charge extra for her to pluck the greys out of pubes?? I’d liek a rug if possible.
“processing” dog hair is no different from “processing” sheep’s wool or angora goat fur; it’s an intensive washing, carding, and spinning.
Although I confess to being a little surprised the first time I saw this–what’s really the difference since most folks have no problem wearing wool from a sheep? You don’t hear people ask “ewww does it smell like wet sheep? gross!!” FWIW wet sheep smell a lot worse than wet dogs, but once it’s “processed” the hair doesn’t smell much at…
aw, hush now, all you haters… she’s Living her Dream.
When I have dreams that I’m spinning dog hair into yarn I wake up screaming, but that’s just me.
This is fucking insane, but is it really THAT far a cry from an expensive angora sweater from J Crew or a wool Shetland cap? (angora = rabbit hair; Shetland = sheep wool).
It looks a little “ruff” to me…..
Too bad she doesn’t do cat hair. She could call them pussy caps!
we should send some of these to kids in cancer wards. then they can get the feel, comfort, and smell of a beloved family pet without contaminating their clean rooms. let the healing/heeling begin.
Ew – jokes about kids with cancer. Not funny.
*points to the line that’s been crossed*
who said i was joking?
Lots of people spin dog hair… I’m told once it’s washed, it doesn’t smell any worse than wool (though wet wool still stinks.) But you can’t do it with just any type of dog. It has to be the undercoat of certain fluffy, double-coated breeds with relatively long staple lengths. She’s setting herself up for failure. I’m pretty sure poodles aren’t double coated, are they? Aren’t they supposed to not shed? Also, done right, it looks a lot like angora, not a beaver pelt.
I’ve heard of people spinning dog hair, and depending on the dog it can work very well. I admit if I could spin OR knit, I would consider it because my collie grows an unbelievable amount of undercoat.
I can process Something For You, and it could easily be shaped into any form You like.
I’d like some dog hair mittens so I can jack it while a bear hugs me from behind.
I wonder if she’d make a sweater for one of my dogs out of the fur of the other…
stingray charles…bwha ha ha
First off, What if there are fleas? Secondly I hope she doesn’t make undergarments out of that. I would think it would be a) itchy, b)smelly when wet (how do you wash it?), and c) would you really want to date someone wearing a thong made of cat/dog hair?
Hey so my dog always smells like corn chips…
#64 – That’s hilarious! I’ve always said my dog’s paws smell like Fritos.
that is Truly Disgusting
Corn chips or the thong idea? I’m almost fond of the thong as long as there are no cornchip aromas. How much for a thong? It’s a lot smaller than a hat or gloves, $80 seems pretty steep…unless there’s rhinestones or something rad like that.
the full description of this is just hilarious. must be free of Mats? I’m not a dog owner but i don’t think The Replacements hide out in dog fur =)
What the fuck is the deal with her location???
“Collins Center South of Buffalo part of the Western New York area Near the shores of Lake Erie and boy do we get SNOW”
Etsy need to limit the number of characters.
Her grammar, spelling and presentation are horrible, but the object and price are quite reasonable. “Processing” involves washing, sorting, carding, possibly blending with other fibers, spinning, plying and then knitting. All of this takes a great deal of time and no small amount of skill, not to mention expenses for equipment.
Don’t piss off knitters: we have lots of sharp, pointy things that make great weapons
Ok, so my dog has the sort of hair that just spikes into everything. I can’t really collect it up. If I just send this person the contents of the kennel, maybe she can also “extract” it before “processing?”. Maybe I should just send the contents of my vaccuum cleaner bag and wear the entire family?
#64 & #65 My friend always says my dogs paws smell like Doritos! What is with all the paw sniffers up in the business! Are they all chip addicts?
Oh God, just looking at that makes my nose itch. If someone gave this to me as a gift, I’d consider it an assassination attempt.
A friend once told me his mom does this with her shelties fur, makes mittens…I yet to see it…
#12 SelenaEon: at least they’re respecting the First Law of Conservation of Apostrophes
Spinning dog hair is a bitch, or so I’ve been told. She must be planning to card it in with the llama hair or there’s no way she could promise to do it with any dog hair available.
Also, why would you want a hat out of dog hair?
#63, Frontline. ’nuff said.
Apparently this is actually something people do: http://awfullibrarybooks.wordpress.com/2009/10/14/sweaters-from-rover/ Enjoy
Can you make my Husband a Hat from my Pubic hair? How many months do I need to keep it Unshaved?.. LOL
I reckon she’s one huge pet lover. She seems to have everything to do with dogs, cats or anything that are four-legged.
