Did you know?
Camel wool has been used for so long that it is even mentioned in the Bible. This beautiful fiber has been used in the West since at least the 17th century, gaining popularity in the late 19th century in England. Camel wool fibers are finer than most merino wool fibers, making them nearly as soft as cashmere.
