New from Louet North America
Nomad camel yarn is produced from Bactrian camels and is handspun by the Nomads from the Gobi Desert in Mongolia.The skein label is signed personally by the member of the tribe that spun the yarn.
Being handspun and produced directly from the camels that the nomads herd, skeins will vary in length, texture and color. This variance in skein texture and color produces one-of-a-kind treasures with a unique look and feel.
Key properties of Nomad camel yarn are:
- Soft and blooms with handling
- Does not pill
A portion of the proceeds from each sale is returned to the Nomads to help the herder women form cooperatives through which their skill, talent and unique handspun yarns can grow and flourish.
