This listing is for 2 ounces of dehaired baby camel down. It is similar in texture to baby alpaca but even softer. The color is a soft fawn or beige, and this is down, not top. That means it's a pile of lovely fluff.
Camel down has a short staple length of 1 to 2 inches, so it's best used as an add-in for art batts or rolags if you are spinning it. It should felt very nicely as well.
It has a very low micron count of between 17 and 19 microns, which means it is very soft. To give you a comparison, the merino I use varies between 18 and 21 microns, and anything below 30 microns is considered next-to-skin soft. I'm a little particular in that regard, so I prefer to stay below 25 microns.

MY GIFT TO YOU
Also, as a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
Please take a moment to sign up for my weekly newsletter if you haven't already. You'll receive a one-time 15% discount when you do as well as news about Purple Lamb, a monthly designer of the month interview, and news about each sale.
Happy fiber artistry!
