Love your cuddly pet so much that you want him around your body 24-7? If you’re a pet owner who loves to dress your dogs and cats up in adorable little outfits [2], prepare for role reversal, and allow your pet to dress you. Here’s an uber-economical (if not slightly weird) use for all that fur your dog or cat sheds: turn it into a sweater! Think about it – your fluffy friend is a renewable source of fibers, and what better way to say “I love my pet” than by swaddling yourself in a sweater knit [3] from their fur. It’s like giving your cat [4] a hug all day long, but with less claw marks.
