Lovely heavyweight (because of all that silk) smooth yarn.
Fabulously soft (because of all that baby camel).
It’s so delicious I’m thinking of opening a petting zoo specially for this yarn!

It’s an all seasons yarn, in that the silk will work to keep you cool and the camel adds warmth. The fingering weight will make lovely accessories and luxurious lightweight cardigans.

No baby camels were injured in the making of this yarn - they comb the yarn off the baby camels’ tummies.
Baby Camel Tummy Comber - I can’t believe that’s somebody’s real job!
