Wow that's pretty amazing. I like your comment graphic BTW.

And the fleece would cost more than vicuna.....

So, if you sheared this pig, and plied the fleece with silk , would you be able to knit the proverbial purse?

(Forget the ear!) VBG!

I'm still blaming it on the Lincolnshire Chinese.

This just gives me the "woolies".

Elaine, Wet, whatever..

Sorry folks.. this is a real animal, not fictious. It is the Mangalitza hog, once bred as a lard animal. It does need to be shorn every year, which made it less practical for large scale livestock production.
Another "wool" bearing hog was the Lincolnshire Curly Coat, but I don't have any pics.

Now you know.

OK. Somebody out there has way too much computer time on their hands. I don't know which species should be more insulted: sheep or pigs *lol*

...perhaps it is a descendant of Dolly (of cloned sheep fame)...now there's a gene pool for ya...

"Other pigs do not trust it."

Is this the Yarn Harlot's "wool-pig"?
