Cashmere Loo Roll — 'The ultimate bathroom indulgence'

Cashmere-loo_1576089c

From the Telegraph (U.K.) comes news that British supermarket chain Waitrose has begun offering toilet paper employing cashmere amongst its ingredients.

According to Telegraph consumer affairs editor Harry Wallop's February 10, 2010 article, "No cashmere fibres themselves are included in the manufacturing process. Rather, the paper is covered in oil extracted from the hairs of the cashmere goat."

"The cashmere rolls cost £2.29 for a pack of four, double the price of Waitrose's basic version, Essentials Ultra, which retails for £1.19 for four."

While wearing a cozy sweater made of cashmere wool seems appealing, I'm not sure I want to rub my privates in goat hair oil.
