Oh my that tail is taking the forest home! If that were Ashley, she would have stopped and tried to
pick out every last piece. She really does not like things stuck to her fur.

For the wool, I don’t know if you have ever tried this, but fulled wool is fairly waterproof.
We do renaissance faire, german mercinaries, and the proper clothing is made with fulled
wool. Great for the rain, since a lot of it rolls off for quite a while and it stays warm if it does get wet.
We get either wool flannel or wool gaberdine and you wash it in hot, hot, hot water with lots
of agitation. Dry and repeat 2+ times more depending on how much you full it expect anywhere from 20-50%
shrinkage. It will also get really thick. And when you have it fulled really well (maybe 30-50%)
you can cut the fabric and it will not fray. You must have 100% wool and it can not be on a synthetic
mesh or have any synthetic fibers. I can recommend a few places that sell 100% wool if you are interested.

I was thinking of making a few simple coats for in the car for Ashley if she gets wet.

I like the idea of a go pro!
