Camel hair wool is obtained by combing and shearing the hair of the Bactrian camel (Camelus bactrianus). Camel hair is gathered during the summer shedding, which lasts six to eight weeks. To remove any residual dust and other impurities, the hair is thoroughly combed and washed. Important suppliers of camel hair are Mongolia, Iran, Afghanistan, Russia, Tibet, and Australia.
Camel wool regulates the temperature very well and is especially suitable as a top layer on the summer side of the bed. To produce camel wool filling, camel hair is first thoroughly combed and then mechanically woven into soft pads using non-woven textile technology.
