Camel Hug's Unique Properties

It has been said that being unique is better than being perfect. (Octamelia Sasmitha Aatmaja). If that is the case then Camel Hugs are unique in every way.

Unlike synthetic materials which can cause itchiness or skin rash, Camel Hug products made from the finest fibers of camel hair that comes from the Bactrian camel.  This species of camel can be found throughout the Siberian steppe and the cold, arid deserts of Central and Eastern Asia. The camel hair from these animals has the dual purpose of keeping them cool when the temperature rise to over 37° Celsius (100° F)  and warm when the temperature drops to as low as –29° Celsius (–20° F).

In order to respect these wonderful creatures as well as provide the highest quality of camel hair, fibers are collected through cruelty-free and sustainable methods. Camels naturally shed their hair annually every spring during a 6-8 week moulting season where it is combed and then collected. Each camel can produce around five pounds (2.25 kg) of hair annually.

Fallen hair is normally gathered manually, by hand. After the hair has been collected, the coarse and fine hairs are then separated so that only the highest quality of camel hair is used in production. Fibers are then washed and combed many times to remove any dirt or debris and then spun into yarn suitable for weaving or knitting.
