SPINNING - Well, surprise! Yes, you can spin Sheltie fur into yard. Karen spins occasionally and really enjoys working with that fluff! Sable gives a nice tweedy look. Black give a heather to charcoal gray color. Blue give a misty gray to heather color. Bathe the dog, brush it out and get going. Or you can spin the year and then carefully wash it after. Karen uses a Louet Spinning wheel - compact and light! For spinning lessons, search on the web or contact your local county fair or cooperative extension office and ask for direction to a hand spinner near you. Look for people who work with sheep, llamas, alpacas and angora rabbits!
