Reply To: Doggy Raincoats/ Body suits

The wool you buy is not fulled. You get to do that fun part!
The trick is hot water and lots of agitation together. We add boiling water to the washing machine. And we did dry it hot. Repeat until you have the thickness and lack of fraying you want.
Trying to agitate by hand is difficult; we tried and failed.

I attached a file with info including some dog coat patterns I had searched out last month. The file is not pretty or well formatted as it is just my collection of ideas. Some of the pictures did not seem to come through when I converted the file to a .doc file, but the web line is listed.

Edit: the file is too large to attach. Just send requests to me at and I will send it along with an additional pattern.
