Pretty handspun yarn and fiber arts made out of your cat’s hair. We’re intrigued…
Cynthia is working at the computer when she suddenly hears some rustling coming from the “cat cabinet” in the hallway.
She opens it to find Penelope Kitten wrestling with the cat brush.
Cynthia (joking): Hey P, what’d that brush ever do to you?
penelope kitten (squeaking): nothing.
Just then Cynthia spies two shoe boxes full of cat hair. One that is obviously Penelope’s and the other, Marcy’s.
penelope kitten: ok. yeah yeah. so. i’m saving our cat hair to send to Nine Lives Twine.
Cynthia (horrified): Why?!
penelope kitten: so Theresa, a fab fiber artist, can turn it into yarn and make scarves and toys and stuff.
Cynthia (perplexed): Really? Is that… sanitary?
penelope kitten: totes sanitary. but you have to follow the instructions.
Cynthia: Oh! So it’s like a wool. Like from sheep or alpacas! I get it, I get it.
penelope kitten: yeah yeah. and it’s so pretty. Theresa hand spins it herself.
Cynthia: Oh wow! It is. It’s gorgeous. And, she’s got lots of different ways to incorporate your cat’s hair into the yarn if you don’t have enough or if the hair isn’t long enough. Theresa will either send you your yarn or you can commission her to make something.
Cynthia: What are you planning to make with your and Marcy’s yarn?
penelope kitten: a couple of these toy mouse bippies with Marcy’s hair.
penelpe kitten: aha ha ha.
Cynthia: Payback for her snarky mean comments in her last post?
penelope kitten: yeah yeah. i think our readers need it too.
Cynthia: And what about your hair?
penelope kitten: a scarf
to wear when you are out
so you always have me with you
Just then a loud retching comes from the other room.
penelope kitten (excitedly): gasp! hairball!
Penelope Kitten races off to collect Marcy’s hairball.
Cynthia races after her.
Cynthia: Penelope! Hairballs are NOT in the instructions!
*Check out Nine Lives Twine website for more info about the process and ordering. You’ll find a beautiful and fascinating video about how the yarn is created on the home page.
Or, visit them in person at CatCon!
