Camel hair is considered to be a luxury fibre in its de-haired form with a micron count of 17-19.
The Bactrian (two humped) camel produces an undercoat of soft strong fibre and a coarse outer coat of strong fibre. The animal sheds its hair every year and this is collected by the herdsmen. The fibre from the soft undercoat is prized for use in coatings and other fabrics. This is obtained commercially in a carding process, known as de-hairing. This process is slow and expensive but results in the deliciously soft 1-inch staple fiber you see here.
Micron count: 17
