Natural White | DHG Baby Camel Roving | 5g
Extra fine baby camel roving (≈18 micron) roving/top in natural white.
Baby camel fibre has a short staple (around 4cm). Laid out delicately it will produce a thin dense felt with a flexible handle and soft sheen. It will strongly bond to fine silk and is ideal for nuno felting. It does not shrink at the same rate as merino, so gives a curled effect when used as a top dressing. If a pinch of fibre is finger twisted before being laid on top of merino, it will form a distinctly crinkled line with curly ends.
Available in 5g, 10g, 20g and 50g individually labelled packs, the fibre will be supplied in a continuous length and pulled, not cut, to prevent damage to the staple. The roving/tops weight averages 18g/m, the length 2.5 metres per 50g.
