Would You Ever Wear a Shirt With Human Hair in It?

Would You Ever Wear a Hair Shirt?

Over the weekend, I was walking by a building when I saw this (forgive the camera phone pic; it was all I had with me) in a window and stopped cold. "Is that . . . human hair?!" I thought to myself.

When I got closer, my stomach started to churn — the shirt is, in fact, made with what a little tag next to it called "buried hair." I don't even want to think about what that means. I know there's a long history of human hair being used for jewelry and as a memento, and maybe I'm just easily skeeved out by this art project, but would you wear something like this, or does it give you the creeps too?
