This is a wrap to enjoy the natural features of the baby camel wool! It has excellent thermostatic properties which isulate camels in the high mountain cold and protect them in the desert heat. These caracteristics are transferred to the fabrics made of camel hair. The camel hair is collected by hand from late spring till early summer during the molting season when camels naturally shed their hair. The wrap is already quite soft right from the bag because I have used the twill weaving to make breaking in easier. It's suitable for all experience levels and most ages. Once washed and broken in, it is even suitable for the newborns, but the baby camel yarn will provide a good grip if you carry bigger babies and toddlers.
This is a medium-weight wrap. Suitable for all experience levels, except if you are the very first time wrapper. The wrap has a bit of cardboard feel from the bag, but after the first washing cylce it will become soft, moldable and easy to handle. Ironing on the low temperature will help to get rid of the light prickly feel.
The wrap is suitable for newborns and toddlers. The baby camel yarn in combination with the Angel Wing pattern makes this wrap amazingly supportive, but gentle for your shoulders.
The yarn comes from the warm undercoat from the two-humped Bactrian baby camel. This type of camel lives mainly in the inner Mongolia, Kazakhstan, and Afghanistan. They are tended by nomadic herders. In the winter the Bactrian camels grow a thick warm coat to protect themselves from the cold. In spring they naturally shed their soft under hair which is collected by the herders.
The baby camel hair has a structire similar to cashmere. It makes a lightweight, super soft yarn with thermal regulation.
