I once put hair from my Newfoundland dog in my compost pile. Even though I turned that pile every few days, I ended up having to pull out the hair before I could use the finished compost the following year. The hair didn't break down at all.
When discussing this with a friend, she pointed out that it isn't all that unusual for hair to be found still attached to skeletons in archaeological digs. Maybe my pile just wasn't running hot enough, though. [img]https://bestsmileys.com/clueless/4.gif[/img]
