You will fall in love with this baby de-haired camel hair if you enjoy wet felting or needle felting. This luxury fiber is incredibly soft. The micron count is 17-19, and the staple length is short at 2 inches. Down is a bit like a batt — the fibers are crossed. You can tear off small pieces easily. The crossed fibers and short staple length make it quick to felt. If you like needle felting 2 D pictures, camel hair is perfect. The colors are great for needle felting animal portraits. You can use it for detail work and top coat for your 3 D creations. Wet felts easily. It spins well, but be aware the fiber length is short so it may be more suitable for an advanced spinner. Sold by the ounce.
