Our Simply Camel couldn't be simpler. One hundred percent undyed baby camel, there is only one choice: yarn how it was grown by the animals who grew it. Simply Camel's 2-ply spin is a fingering weight, best knit on US 2 or 3 (3 or 3.25 mm) needles. Incredibly soft with a beautiful drape and a desert glow, Simply Camel is a wonderful choice for classic sweaters, heirloom scarves, and all-time favorite hats. It is also Fair Trade Certified and comes from camels who live freely in unfenced pastures. Once their fibers are cut with scissors, brushed with combs, or gathered from the ground, it is sorted for quality and sent to a scouring mill that uses underground water and APEO-free detergent. The wastewater gets processed first in their own mill and then again by a facility set up by the local government, all to prevent dirty water from entering the ecosystem. So, in the end, Simply Camel may be simple, but its beauty runs deep!
