Well you don't have to but you get nice even dubbing if you do. I copied this from a site. I just searched for making dubbing.

By using a coffee or spice grinder: cut yarn or fur into lengths no longer than 1/2 inch. Add to grinder and whirl away. Some tyers will rub the grinder with an anti-static sheet to remove the static electricity which may cause uneven results. Pulse instead of using a continouus grind. Check to make sure that the fibres do not tangle in the blade and that the synthetics are not melting in the process. This will be seen as little nits of fused plastic throughout the dub. Do not grind for long periods and without continual monitoring. One may want to scrape the sides periodically to aid in the blending process if the materials have vastly different textures
