Eh. I sell a lot of angora and mohair sweaters to people I know are buying for fetish reasons. They pay good money. To requests like that, I just say, "Not my size and not my thing, thanks. Enjoy your purchase."

Huh. Reminds me of the messages that YouTube vloggers used to get: I'm excellent at reading fortunes from the soles of people's feet. Could you make a video of *that*? facepalm.gif

There is a significantly sized section on Fiverr where many sellers will video themselves blowing up a balloon till it pops in their face.

Yours is more timely.  I was thinking along the lines of:  They killed cousin It.

Mind you, not just ANY mohair or angora.  If it isn't at least 70% angora (80-100% is better), and fluffy/furry/fuzzy/hairy, I leave it there. For mohair, think 1970s shag carpet. My friend 'justmystyles' on eBay has a following for that kind of stuff.  If I run across something I think she'll do better with than I could, I ping her and let her buy it/sell it. But she's in her mid 80s and has to support herself.

 

I put her onto this one the other day:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hot-Pink-Furry-Hand-Loomed-Hairy-Mohair-Cardigan-Sweater-Sz-1x-2x-coat-jacket-/401180416155?hash=item5d6837589b:g:TyAAAOSwFe5XyhuL  and she flipped it within a day or to. I think it was $15? 

 

Then there's this one. I don't know where she found it, but wowza!! http://www.ebay.com/itm/AGATHA-Furry-Mauve-100-Angora-Fur-Sweater-Sz-4-SUPER-HAIRY-Fuzzy-/401186433787?hash=item5d68932afb:g:HmIAAOSwvzRX1Nbo 

 

My personal theory is that most of these buyers hit puberty in the early 80s. That's when angora was THE thing for young women to wear. It must have made an impression.

I was hoping no-one would ask.

"SUPER HAIRY..."

 

lol. i have heard that there's like a bio-chemical awakening that happens and it's a bit like a love potion in an adolescent kid, sometimes the mind will focus on some random thing  - like feet - and that's that. 

 

what i heard anyways.

I still don't get it.

But, something else to troll the thrifts for. Maybe.

In my world, angora sweaters were like a 50s thing - my mom's era, when women had pointy bras and pencil skirts etc. But a nice snug fuzzy angora or mohair sweater never totally goes out of style in my opinion.
