pheromone socks.jpg
chilli sweater.jpg
There may not appear to be anything unusual about this pair of socks and this sweater made by Jenny Willknitt, but it’s what you don’t see that makes them unique.

“Podophilia” [are] socks infused with pheromones to empower women to feel more confident about their feet by making them the object of male fascination…

But that’s nothing compared to “Sweater Curse.”

An emotional insurance policy, this sweater is made from chilli soaked garden twine spun with a soft alpaca coating. If the sweater’s recipient leaves the knitter then revenge is wrought as the sweater gets itchier and they get chilli burns, if the sweater curse proves false then the knitter can make them a new sweater.

Yikes.
