Ashford Camel Down

Camel down is an economical way of incorporating this great fiber into your spinning. The staple is very short, so the fiber is probably best for blending with other fibers like wool.

Note: Fiber ordered by the ounce may have its quantity adjusted before shipping to reflect its actual net weight.

      Comments about Ashford Camel Down:

      I bought a few ounces of camel down just to see what it is like - I LOVE IT! I have only been spinning a short time and was intimidated by the short staple length, but as long as I put enough twist in, it is wonderful to work with. I spun it at lace weight, I imagine it would not work so great to spin directly for a heavier weight. It is down so it requires some predrafting, but that is not much work for such a great fiber at an affordable price.
