Thanks. I'll have to try that in the spring. Since it's going to start cooling off, they dogs aren't going to be shedding enough for me to do anything with, but I'll let you know!!! :D

I checked out the link. It was about how to felt, but she didn't actually tell you how to do it. The link to the "article" about felting with cat hair was a book review.

You can felt dog hair..i have done it...you can felt any type of fiber from any animal. When i felt i just use hot water, soap and a chunk of that clear plastic hallway runner you see in office's...has all the grooves on top anything with a lot of texture and waterproof is good to felt on. You just take the fiber and dip it in hoot water and felt then keep rubbing it back and forth on the mat and flipping/folding and adding more of the soapy hot water mix until it felts. It's actually pretty quick.
