Why aren’t more people doing this?

With all the extra cat hair in the world, why aren’t we using it to make soft, colorful mohair-like sweaters and accessories, instead of letting it clog our landfills?

Seriously, why not?  We make wigs out of extra human hair, so why not make useful items out of extra cat hair?   It’s not like there’s a shortage of it or anything.

Actually, there are a few folks doing this.  There’s even a book about crafting with cat hair.  But most people still think it’s weird and gross.  Why?  It’s not like the cats are killed for their fur.   It’s dropping off of them constantly, so why not put it to use?

Little cats made out of cat hair.

Looks like mohair or cashmere to me.

This is a really attractive bag. Don’t tell anyone what it’s made of and no one will ever know.
