Camel hair fibre is not half as well known as it ought to be! We thought we’d give those of you who haven’t knitted with it before some fun facts on this ethically-sourced exotic fabric.
Camel wool fibre is finer than most merino (sheep wool), making it often feel just as soft as cashmere.
A camel’s hair is thermo-regulated to keep them warm in the cold and cool in hot temperatures – this translates into warm yet breathable fabric when it’s blended with other fibres.
Garments knitted up with camel wool are lightweight yet warm which makes it perfect for springtime knits. It is even soft and comfy enough for baby clothes!
