Just finished the latest project — three dog scarves. Not scarves for dogs, despite what the full size version of the second image may indicate, but scarves made from dog.
The striped warp is commercial cotton in black and natural, the white being too stark against the natural colour of the dog yarn, which gives the finished scarves a fuzzy halo much like mohair.
The weft for two of the scarves is a hand spun blend of Alaskan Malamute and Siberian Husky undercoat — the stuff they would otherwise leave all over the house. The yarn for one of the scarves is overspun, producing a scarf with a corded texture. The third scarf is woven with dog yarn plyed with natural black Alpaca giving the finished item a tweed effect.
All three scarves are finished with hand twisted fringes.
Although, sometimes luck is with you and they stop gnawing on each others heads long enough to get a decent picture.
