Bit of a long shot on behalf of my daughter …. She has a very small bag of fur she has saved from her beloved Birman cats. Two have unfortunately passed away and I know she would love this fur to be spun into a ball of yarn. Can anyone help please..

Your best bet would be to contact your local Guild of Weavers Spinners and Dyers:

Bear in mind that the addresses listed are where the regular meets take place. Follow the links to specific guilds to find contact details.

I used to spin, it is a lovely relaxing hobby. You certainly can spin fur, some of the ladies used to spin dog hair. It would be a very fine,soft ‘wool’.

Thank you Flexagon for your response. I am in Devon, my daughter in Exeter, so I have indeed contacted the Exeter branch. Hopefully I’ll have a positive response…..
