Maybe if you live in Cairo, a camel is not so uncommon a thing, but for New Yorkers your best chance of getting close to a camel is at the zoo… Or at Purl Soho! Our new Camel yarn from Lanecardate is 100% camel and 100% special.

Double Seed Stitch Scarf | Purl Soho

This Camel yarn has a lofty chainette construction, which makes it especially toasty and also lends itself to pretty stitch patterns, like the one we used in our stunning Double Seed Stitch Scarf. In the only color nature intended, camel, this scarf’s rich color and beautiful texture make it a true classic.

Fine camel yarn comes from the animals’ downy inner coats, which are as soft and warm as cashmere. And so, although we love the fun of trying this off-the-beaten-path fiber, even more, we love its softness, beauty, and intrinsic warmth. Thank you, camels! -Laura
