wed was hump day-in a dromedary way

with some great advice from the wild spinning girls and wild fibers' camel edition.
this fluffy stuff became such plushy yummy yarn! 2 plyed it is 22 WPI, which i will have to look up what weight yarn that is.

3 oz yeilded 270 yds plus a lil hank i am keeping forever. perfectly balanced, no twisting when you hang it. i love it! it needs to be a very special project! :-) any ideas???

I love the camel yarn! Maybe a really cushy hat with cables.

I really like your blog and will add it to my bloglines so I can keep up.

I like the picture of the camel above ...

I never touchted camel-yarn (just took a ride on a camel once), I unfortunately don't know how it feels.

What about a shawl as a project or maybe a cushion?

I heard that camel-leather should become quite smelly when it's wet, I hope that's not the same with camel-yarn ...

I never thought a camel could be cute until I saw that pic. I'll be watching to see what you do, I inherited a stash with a big bag of camel fibre in it that I can't decide what to make with.
