Cat Fur Crafts

Updated on October 9, 2014

Crafting with Cat Hair

Cats shed. Cat hair clumps and can be found around the house. You brush your cat and even more cat hair is revealed! Fear not. Cat fur crafts to save the day!

The book shown here, Crafting with Cat Hair: Cute Handicrafts to Make with Your Cat, gives you crafting ideas to put that cat fur to good use. And if you don't have a cat, there's a book for you: Knitting with Dog Hair!

If the idea of using pet hair for crafts is gross, well, consider that wool is sheep's hair. I say, big whoop. Hair's hair.

Cat Comb with Rotating Teeth - It doesn't pull the pet's hair.

My cat, Scarlett O' Hairy, loves to be brushed with a cat comb with rotating teeth. But to be frank, that's probably because I give her treats when I'm done.

      Perhaps not cat fur but we know women who spin Samoyed dog fur and knit and crochet with it. We have a crocheted rose (goes on our Christmas tree) form Sammie hair. I understand the fur is much warmer than traditional yarns.

      I've made fire starters using lint from the dryer which has a lot of our dog's hair in it. Does that count? lol

      What a great idea! I will look into this for sure...my cat named Kitty has tree layers of the most silky and soft fur that surely would be great for this crafting. Thanks for sharing!

      Everytime I find one of our cat's whiskers I think of painting a landscape on a grain of rice.

      I have seen someone that makes jewelry out of cat hair. I certainly have a ton of it now OC is living with me. I started adding it to my composter. Don't think I'd have the patience for crafts.

      Very interesting lens, I have cats and they shed a lot of fur. Never thought of using it for crafting.
