Bear is a beautiful Newfoundland dog who lives near by and is happy to share some of his hair with me! When Wendy, Bear’s owner, combs him. She saves the hair for me to spin! I have spun 100% Bear hair and 50% Bear 50% wool. It is a lovely warm result with lots of character!
I entered a skein of Bear’s hair/wool blend in the Provincial Agricultural fair in Truro and won the reserve champion prize!
Thanks again Bear (and Wendy)
