    Did you know?

    Ever wondered which clothing material is the most expensive in the world? Well, we are here to tell you that it is the much sought-after vicuña wool. The vicuña camel from which the wool comes is only shorn once every 3 years, hence why the material is so rare and expensive. Weave some gold into it and it's almost $1,800 a yard
