Blue Cross's animals spinning a yarn...

Blue Cross

Homeless animals at Blue Cross are putting their moulted fur to good use as the charity launches a new range of wool made from the hair shed from its rescue pets.

Staff across the charity’s 12 rehoming centres are collecting fur from the grooming brushes, beds and blankets of dogs, cats, rabbits and horses, which is being treated and spun into balls of yarn which will then be available for animal-lovers and crafters to buy, from wool made specifically from horse hair to canine cashmere and even knitty kitty yarn.

Andrew Gillon, Centre Manager at Blue Cross in Suffolk, explains: “Blue Cross cares for almost 8,000 pets every year across its rehoming centres. We groom the animals in our care on a regular basis and it’s amazing how much fur comes out, especially at this time of year when animals begin to moult. There’s also a lot of fur collected left on blankets and beds which are washed daily. Rather than throw it away we thought we’d put it to good use and spin it into yarn for people to buy.”

“We are always looking at new ways to raise funds. We think this will be really popular with those who love pets and knitting.

“Now people can craft using the wool of their favourite pet whilst helping a good cause at the same time!”
