Husky yarn

Christine was spinning husky yarn today and it looked like fun. It was white and fluffy and looked like rabbit’s fur. She had brought along plenty of bags of it so that if anyone else wanted to try it they could. There were takers because it is a nice challenge. We were wondering if you could felt it but dog fur doesn’t usually felt. It can matt so we were wondering if you could card it in with other felting fibres. Our idea was to make husky slippers. They’d be so soft and warm. We also thought it would be good to card the husky fur in with wool and alpaca before spinning. What Christine was spinning , though, looked really nice and we look forward to seeing the finished yarn.
