ABSTRACT
The hair of numerous mammals present a perfect material for textile production. Mainly natural hair coat of sheep, goats or lamas is used for that purpose. Nevertheless, also hair coming from other animal species, like dogs, may be used for yarn production. Taking above into consideration we decided to conduct the research aiming at analysis of hair of collie dogs, paying attention to their physical properties, histological structure and warm-keeping properties of the yarn obtained from them. Basing on conducted analysis it was determined that in hair coat of collie breed dogs fluff hair were predominant (about 75%) that influenced its high spinning properties. An average thickness of non-apart hair was 66 μm, while of fluff and ivolcure 49 and 90 μm, respectively. In turn, an endurance of non-apart fraction of hair was about 15 kg mm-2. Moreover, it was observed that a yarn from dogs' hair was characterized by better warm-keeping properties comparing to sheep wool. Also differences between fluff and involcure hair in a range of histological structure of their epithelium-scale layer was determined.
