Just type “cat hair” into the search bar on Etsy and you’ll be bombarded with a wide selection of jewelry, clothing and toys—all made from discarded pet hair. 

Some people think it’s gross.  Others claim it’s a great way to recycle the stuff that’s been plaguing pet owners since the beginning of time. 

Check out these items, all made from pet hair, and decide for yourself—are these crafts creeptastic or super cool?

Have you recently lost your pet?  Consider having a chunk of the fur preserved in a necklace, so you can always have your best friend close to your heart. 

Btw…the above cat hair pendant is clearly inspired by Victorian mourning jewelry, where people would place a lock of their deceased loved one’s hair into an ornate setting.
