How useful is this page? Besides giving the official term for dog hair fiber, which I'm not sure can't be done on the natural fiber page, or the dog page. Why does dog hair have its own page, when, to the best of my knowledge, it is rarely used? Also, I don't see much use to the list of dogs that are good for fiber without some more information. I don't mean to sound so negative... Loggie (talk) 11:23, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
- I have removed the proposed deletion tag from this. Being rarely used doesn't mean that this isn't a notable subject, and this has been the subject of academic papers (e.g. ) which means that there is plenty that can be written on the subject. There is also a listing for this in a specialist paper encyclopedia , which is usually accepted as evidence of notability. Phil Bridger (talk) 14:07, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
The article states: It is up to 80% warmer than wool and is not elastic. ... It is also often blended with wool in order to create a yarn with less heat insulation.
- I took that to mean that the blend is less stiflingly hot than yarn made of dog hair alone, but maybe it could use some clarification. The blend is also supposed to be considerably more elastic than dog hair alone, though I don't have references handy and haven't spun it myself so didn't edit the article.
