There is a lady in our rescue who spins Husky fur into yarn and then knits things out of them and auctions them off online to raise money for Save Our Siberians Siberspace Rescue Fund. Pretty neat idea, huh?
Well, my mommy thought she would like to have something knitted out of my fur that she could keep forever and ever. She also thought it would make a very soft and warm scarf, and that it would be very pretty since I have such silky, beautiful reddish-brown fur.
So my mom asked this lady how much fur she needed to save. The lady said to save two big paper grocery bags full of fur. She said if you save it in a plastic bag it will smell really bad later. She said not to mash it down or else the fur would need to be carded. So my mom will save the hair and then send it somewhere to have a scarf made. Neat! See, not only are we beautiful, loyal, entertaining and smart, we can also provide you with warm clothes! I wonder if the ancient Chukchi people used our fur to make clothing and blankets?
