Samoyed dogs are combed for their 'dog wool' which is knitted into socks for the Forces.
Titles read: "VERY DOGGY!!"
Location of events unknown - somewhere in England.
Various shots of girls of the Canine Defence League combing fluffy Samoyed dogs in a garden. Commentator explains that the 'dog wool' goes to make socks for the Forces; the coats of these dogs coats yield enough wool for 100 pairs of "long sea boot stockings".
The hair that comes off is washed and laid spread out in the sun to dry, then carded by hand and spun into wool on old-fashioned spinning wheels. A woman sits in the garden knitting some long socks - they look rather fluffy and itchy, but I expect they were very warm. A girl shows us a finished pair and then poses with a fluffy pup.
Cataloguer's note: commentator lists other breeds that can yield 'dog wool': Old English Sheepdog, Pekinese, Poodle, Chow, Golden Retriever, Cocker Spaniel, Pom and St Bernard. Whatever next - air force mittens from Persian cat hair?
