With less than 1 ounce of pet fur, you can make a bookmark, ear warmer, headband, hair scrunchie, shoe laces, decorative flowers, hearts, sachets, or even an entire skein of yarn. (Most of these cost under $20.)
With 3 ounces or more, they can custom make an item for you. Prices typically range from $20 to $60 and higher for larger customized items.
Want To Try A Sampler First?
Send a small sample of your dog’s fur and they’ll spin it for you into a cord of about a foot long.
This will show you what your pet’s hair looks like when it’s been “spun”, and it will give you some idea of what the finished item would look like if you chose a custom item made from your dog’s fur.
This process works best if your pet has hair that is at least 2 inches long.

I like to help Dog Parents find unique ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about "outside the box" Dog Tips and Dog Hacks that most wouldn't think of. I’m a lifelong dog owner — currently have 2 mixed breed Golden Aussies that we found abandoned on the side of the road as puppies. I've always trained my own dogs and help friends train theirs, as well. Professionally, I worked at a vet and have several friends who are veterinarians — whom I consult with regularly. (And just because I love animals so much, I also worked at a Zoo for awhile!) I've been sharing my best ideas with others by blogging full-time since 1998 (the same year that Google started… and before the days of Facebook and YouTube). My daily motivation is to help first-time dog owners be better prepared from the first day your new puppy enters your home. I like to help dog owners understand what's 'normal' and what you can expect in terms of living with and training your dog — how to get through the ups & downs of potty training, chewing, teaching commands, getting your dog to listen, and everything else that takes place during that hectic first year! When I'm not training, walking, grooming, or making homemade treats for my dogs, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites). To date, I've written over 500 articles for dog owners on this site!
