Camel's Hair

Description : Camel hair is widely known for its softness, lustre, natural tan color and warmth without weight. Camel hair is warmer than wool, but less durable - hence it is frequently blended with wool. Camel's hair has a nap.
Fabrication : Obtained when the two-humped camel molts in the spring, only the soft, downy hair near the camel's skin is used to make quality fabrics. The coarser outer hair is used to make blankets and rugs.
