Heather Pfeifer of Calgary was spinning dog fur into yarn at the market during the harvest fair and penny carnival at Stephansson House Provincial Historic Site Sunday. Through her company, Sled Dog Fibre Arts, she creates and markets keepsakes and usable items such as gloves, toques and socks out of fur from northern breed dogs such as Huskies, Malamutes and Samoyeds – dogs which have an undercoat.

The fur she was using Sunday was from her own dog which she lost last fall.
