One pair of socks? That's £95 please
People who are still rolling in the money at this point in the credit crunch may be lucky enough to own a pair of Mongolian socks - at the eye-opening price of £95.

However, the staff of Brora in London's Islington assert that the material the socks are produced from is not exactly easy to obtain, according to the Islington Gazette.

Supervisor Sarah Jones, backed by her colleague Laura Smart, say the cashmere is extremely rare.

Ms Jones told the newspaper: "They come from the belly hair of Mongolian goats and each goat produces so little of it that it takes three goats to make one jumper. It is super soft."

The origin of cashmere is still debated, according to knitwear company Eribe, which explains that many believe it to be from Kashmir in northern India and others stating that it was found in the Himalayas.
