My friend Leigh’s husband is British and they go back every year to visit family. This time they went to an exhibit at the Imperial War Museum about animals in WWII called The Animals’ War. Wool was hard to come by–as was everything else–so the “British Dogs’ Wool Association” put out this poster to get people to save their dogs fur for use in making things for the soldiers. I can find no other information online about this organization, so I’m guessing, it’s no longer in existence–but I bet it would be popular again since there are many dog-loving spinners out there!
