Baby Camel Combed Top- 50g- Undyed

Hilltop Cloud


Baby Camel

50g (1.8oz)

This fibre comes from the Bactrian (two humped) camel. Each year the camel sheds its coat, and this is collected by herdsmen. The fibre is then de-haired to remove the thicker hairs of the outer coat leaving behind the fine (17-19 micron) undercoat. The short style length suits a point of twist style draft, but the fine micron count means it will handle a high twist level without feeling harsh, and enough twist is required otherwise the yarn will tend to pill. The resulting yarn is very warm, and beautiful fluffy. 

 

Whether you're a spinner, felter, or mixed media artist you'll love working with this fibre.
