    You can sell it to me![​IMG] The best way to get the wool off is to comb it. That way you can work on them a bit at a time and they are never too hot or too bare. She'll have to comb them every day anyway to keep them from getting matted or sick from licking too much ( hairballs![​IMG])

    The best thing to do ( and the most fun) would be for her (and you) to learn to spin! Its really fun and not too hard to learn. If theres a yarn shop anywhere near you, they'd probably refer her to a local person that wants the fur. But I'm serious about wanting it too. PM me if you want!
