The Camel fibre, obtained from the camel, is collected in Spring when tufts of hair are naturally shed or by combing. The colour of the fibre is usually the typical light brown color, but it can generally vary from white to dark brown. The most valuable fibre is the undercoat, whose fineness may vary from 17 to 22 microns. The precious fibre called Baby Camel, comparable to cashmere, is obtained through a careful sorting and dehairing process. Only the finest fibres from the most selected sources are used to obtain beautiful knitted and woven items.
