Camel hair, it’s something that you wouldn’t think could end up on a jacket but it’s actually a very classy piece to wear. Camel hair comes in three forms, either actual camel hair, cloth made from partial camel hair, or a synthetic type of hair. Pure camel hair is gathered when camels moult in warmer seasons. A camel can produce five pounds of hair a year. During the moulting season the hair falls off beginning at the camel’s neck, then its mane and lastly its body. The moulting season occurs in late spring and the process takes six to eight weeks. After the hair is collected, it goes through sorting and then dehairing in order to separate and clean it. The process of dehairing removes the coarse hair and any dandruff before it’s sent to be spun into yarn. Voila, the camel hair is ready to be made into a blazer.
