This listing is for 4.2 oz of roving made from 100% baby camel wool. It is exceptionally soft and very lofty. It is not dyed, this is the natural color of camel wool. The wool has been cleaned and processed into roving, which you can use to make batts and spin yarn. Additional quantities are available, convo me if you need more.

Because camel wool is so lofty, 4.2 oz is a surprisingly large volume of roving - it fills a gallon-size zip-loc bag. I also offer this roving in a smaller pack - to see all the fiber listings in my Etsy shop, click here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/NorthcottWilson?section_id=5758165

In the interest of full disclosure, unlike my recycled sari silk fiber, this camel roving is not a fair trade item. In the past I limited myself to fair trade organizations, but that prevented me from obtaining certain types of eco-friendly products whose processing requires machinery typically owned by large factories. I selected this particular Chinese factory because of their progressive attitude towards women in the workplace. Most Chinese factories that I worked with in my prior career as a fashion designer were staffed largely by young Asian women who had no opportunity for career advancement; all management positions were held by men. The factory that produced this baby camel roving has female executives.

Please note, the shipping rates quoted below are for USPS First Class. For a small additional fee, I can ship via Priority Mail (within the US, Priority Mail for this item would cost $4.90). International buyers: convo me for a shipping quote if your country is not listed below, if you prefer Priority Mail, or if you want to buy multiple items.
