Camel Hair Blanket
Camel Hair: a Gift for Winterly Temperatures.
In praise of the camel, which he otherwise claims is the “most unlikeable, stupid, stubborn and awkward creature you can think of”, discerning old Brehm (his name a household word for popular zoological literature) must admit that the camel’s hair is a true gift from God, especially when refined by the textile arts. And that it is – at least in northern winters. It is exceptionally warming, lightweight, silky-shiny, and smooth while durable and long-lasting. We have this blanket made from it.
From Pure Camel Hair: a Warming Blanket.
The manufacturer refrains from dying or bleaching the pure, natural camel hair and uses hair in a fibre fineness of 19 to 22 microns for this blanket. All steps – starting with the washing and combing, followed by spinning and weaving, up to the finishing – take place in Germany. The manufacturer increases the volume of the blankets by mechanically roughing the dense-woven fabric on both sides, whereby the surface turns soft and warm. You find the edges loop-stitched with wool yarn.
