Woman Makes Clothes Out of Her Own Hair

Her wardrobe is truly hair-raising!

Ioana Cioanca

A woman has woven an entire wardrobe of clothes out of her own hair, after growing it for more than 50 years.

Ioana Cioanca, 71, has created everything from a hat to a skirt from her 40-inch-long tresses.

She told the Austrian Times: "I have nine items -- a hat, a shawl, a skirt, a blouse, a raincoat, a purse, a handbag and a pair of gloves.

"They are all slightly different colors because of course I went grey over the years."

The 71-year-old from Bistrita Nasaud, Romania, added: "I did this because I wanted to show how practical human hair is. The clothes are warm and comfortable -- and the materials are free."

Unbeweavable! Would you ever do this?

This would have probably been more interesting if it included pics of the clothes she made or at least a link.

Would I ever do this? It took her 50 years to grow 8 things that are brown and grey…so no way!

Nope, but I have thought about learning how to do this with my cats’ fur! LOL

“Unbeweavable” is a great pun.

Just because you can doesn’t mean you should
