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. Our Baby Camel wool is definitely worth trying!
What does it feel like?
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.
What can you knit with it?
Garments knitted up with camel wool are lightweight yet warm which makes it perfect for springtime knits. Our Baby Camel wool is even soft and comfy enough for baby clothes!
