Jumper of the Week Round 2

Art & Culture


With the rip roaring, jumping success of last week's Jumper of the Week – I mean, someone even emailed to say they liked it and everything… this week's Jumper of the Week has been brought to our attention in the form of a couple dressing in Dead Dog jumpers!
This rather good story from 2008 is best told in the words of the original article. 
Pair dress in 'dead dog' jumpers
"The couple's friend spun the dog hair into wool for the jumpers
A Newcastle couple have found a unique way of keeping their beloved dead pets close to their hearts – by having the dog hair made into woolly jumpers.
Beth and Brian Willis lost their white Samoyed, called Kara, 12 years ago and Swedish Lapphund, Penny, in 2002.
After seeing a picture of Princess Diana wearing a dog fur stole at Crufts, they collected thousands of dog hairs from brushes and carpets.
The pair said the his and hers dog memorials were "warm and waterproof".
Mr Willis, who worked for Pickfords Removals for 27 years, wears his doggy jumper into town every Saturday to do the weekly shop.
The 73-year-old said: "They are extremely warm and pretty much waterproof. I've always got a sweat on by the time I get from the bus to the shops."
The world is full of intereresting people… that it is.
See you next week then… maybe.
