These panties made from human hair are just plain weird

28 April 2015, 09:24

Some women like a bit of bush, others like to be as hair-free as they were before puberty struck - and apparently some even want another person’s hair cradling their ladyparts.

This is why someone in Sweden makes panties out of human hair.

According to Gawker, Nina Sparr  is actually doing this with hair collected from people all over her country. She also makes other things from hair, including paintings, accessories and clothing items but let’s be honest, the hair panties are kind of stealing the show here. Check them out below.

Apparently the panties are made from thin, thick, curly and straight hair (we’d rather not think which part of the body the hair comes from).

My first thought I had when I saw this was obviously ‘EEEWWWW!’

Then a number of questions swiftly followed:

Who would wear that?

Won’t they be ridiculously itchy?

Do you wash it with shampoo?

What would it feel like if you get a wedgie?

What’s stopping stray pieces of hair migrating into parts it shouldn’t?

While I am all for creativity and reusing materials, this is a little too weird for my comfort. I think I’ll stick to my standard cotton and lace panties.
