Look what can be made from Birman coat sheddings!! Something to get stuck into during the long winter nights? We thought members would like to see what can be done.


Made by Adriana Smith a Northern Ireland member of the Birman Cat Club, from the hair of her pet, Panjandrum Shula.

Bag and Easter Eggs

Adriana has not spun the hair, but rolled it into yarn and then knitted it to make the bag. The blue leather trimming represents the Birman blue eyes and the pink silk lining the pink paw pads.

Slippers and a little mouse.

Adriana researched the art of felt making, and after much blood, toil, tears and sweat produced the slippers, which are beautifully soft and warm. The mouse is made from the tail hair combings of a seal point.
