As Europe approves camel milk, Kipp look at some of today’s camel-related items

We’ve gone through soap, milk, chocolate and ice cream. The last camel product on our list is fabric. Camel hair has the same as wool and cashmere. You may not even know it but the shirt you’re wearing right now may have a bit of camel in it as the hair can be blended with wool, silk, polyester and nylon.

Besides clothes, the softer hair can be also used as a duvet filling, blankets and even soft furnishings. The courser outer hair can be used for tents, coats, insulation and carpet backing.

Now, before you get all huffy about this animal’s rights, the wool is usually collected when the animals shed their winter coats and is harvested by hand as it naturally molts.

Major supplier countries include China, Mongolia, Iran, Russia, Afghanistan, Tibet, New Zealand and Australia. (Oddly, not Africa or the rest of the Middle East where the majority of the animal population is located.)
