Being one who has to try everything I now want to spin. And while I have no sheepy things, I do have a few long haired dogs that Ive since learned are good for using to spin. But, is it worth it? I know itll be satisfying using yarn I made. Does it take so long to have a usable amount that Ill just get sick of it? Smiley

Yeah, I didnt realize it had been done for so long until the other day. But we have a Siberian Husky puppy, another Siberian/Collie mix and a (get this!) Leonburger! Leonburgers are St Bernard, Great Pyrenees and Newfounland. Which Ive read are all good for spinning. Lucky me! Smiley
