Chiengora (pronounced she-an-gora) refers to yarn spun from dog hair. Our wolf-dogs' molt their undercoat each spring. Their fur is sent to a spinster who spins their fur into yarn and then knits the cowl. It is a lengthy and labor-intensive process, but the end result is a warm, enduring and soft product! This scarf was spun using 100% fur from our wolf-dogs, and knitted by Libby McGee in western NC. Hand wash only & air dry flat.
