Chinese Woman Spends 11 Years Knitting Her Husband a Coat and Hat Out of Her Own Hair



Renxian Xiang , a 60 - year -old Retired teachers from Chongqing , China , has spent the last 11 years weaving a coat and a hat out of her own hair for her husband . He began collecting strands of her hair as they naturally fell out since he was 34 .

" Throughout my childhood I was always famous for my wonderful long hair , and as I grew older I realized that , like my look , my hair is losing its luster , " he said . " Many people envied my long , shiny black hair so I wanted to keep them , even down to the thread . "

For a long time , Xiang collected only her hair but had no idea what to do with it . It was only in 2003 that he decided to amalgamate it with clothing . "I wanted to find a way to maintain it , and came up with the idea to use it to create something for my wife . Took them a while to perfect this approach , it was only when I was 49 I started to work on this project . soon as I got the technique that I have developed , it 's really not hard to do , you just need patience and I knew I had a chance . "




The coat is the first project Xiang, for which he used 15 pieces of hair as one strand of wool standard. He started in 2003 and managed to finish the main body only through 2008. Later, he began weaving the hat, with 20 pieces of hair in each strand. He completed it in 2011. "It takes great patience while weaving work can only do a little each day because of lack of hair," he said.

When the weaving is complete, he felt that the coat needed a bit of a finishing touch. So he decided to consolidate his name and the date of completion to the cuffs on white. He had to wait until the end of last year to collect enough gray hair for his signature.
