What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient, you will get wonky, thick and thin, irregular yarn at first, but this yarn has great character.

Sorry, after Craftsy messed around and dropped felting as a category, I got disheartened about coming here. I didn't realise they'd messed up the info on the Projects too. I can't even see where to add the link info back in.

not sure if I will make my own or buy one once upon a time I had really nice one I even carded my own wool. I now have a long haired Javanese cat I brush him 4 to 5 times a day keeps the fur from the floor but I have managed to accumulate quite a bit and think I am going to give it a spin.. pun intended.. lol its like I real fine silky cotton

My friend knows someone who spins cat and dog hair, I've never seen any myself, but apparently dog hair is good to felt with too :)
