Baby Camel/Silk

Baby Camel/Silk

Regular price $25.20 Sale

A 50/50 blend of baby camel down and tussah silk. 

With a micron count of 16 to 18, and a staple length of 1-3 inches, baby camel down can be as soft as cashmere.  For a fiber that is so soft and fine, it is strong for a luxury fiber.  Camel doesn't have a great tendency toward felting, but it can be achieved.  Silk adds luster and strength.  Information found in The Fleece & Fiber Sourcebook by Deborah Robson & Carol Ekarius.

Sold in 4 ounce quantities.
