Cat sweaters Fri, Jan 23, 2009
Catty Shack Creations makes cat sweaters.  Not sweaters made for cats.  Sweaters made of cats.  Specifically, sweaters, handbags, and other objects are knitted from the discarded hair of groomed cats (the process of spinning the yarn by hand is actually pretty cool).  It's kind of disgusting, except for the fact that the Persian and Angoran cats are thoroughly washed before they're shorn, making them significantly cleaner than sheep, which is where wool comes from.  Nobody thinks twice about the cleanliness of wool.  It's actually not that bad if you think about it, and the handmade products aren't even that expensive.  (via Kottke) #nature
