Baby camel wool is the rarest fiber found in Mongolia. After some work in development and sourcing, our baby camel wool yarn now compares almost directly to cashmere in softness at a more affordable price. As demand continues to increase in the future, I’m confident baby camel wool will become a larger portion of income for herders in the Gobi which these gorgeous Bactrian camels call home.

By working closely with herder cooperatives that are focused on development, we are able to implement programs that would be difficult without close communication. With the demand provided through our Kickstarter campaign and customers, we were able to start the first procurement of baby camel wool through our partners with the SCU (Sustainable Cashmere Union). This is real progress, with income from tonnes of fiber being sold that might have been wasted due to lack of markets or desire for processing and production. As people hear about our progress and see the fiber and yarn we produce, I have little doubt baby camel wool will increase in price in the coming years.

After a year of testing, we have finally produced our long awaited natural dyed camel wool! Using dye from the weld plant (also known as dyer’s weed) we have made the first batch produced naturally dyed fiber in Mongolia. Please follow our washing instructions to remove excess dye from the item and wash before knitting if doing color work with other light yarns!

100% Baby Camel Wool

Always procured from free-range animals raised by traditional herders in the Mongolian countryside.
