Tuesday Top

This week I've been checking out some Camelid fibres.  This Merino/Camel from GirlMeetsSpindle is beautifully dyed and looks like it would spin like a dream.

Camels shed their coats and the soft down is separated out to use for spinning.  The staple is about 2-7cm and natural colours are in the brown range, from cream to dark brown.  It's not cheap but well worth it for a special spin!
