Introduction to our Products
We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the authentic 100% pure Mongolian camel and yak wool products. Mongolian camels live in an unforgiving harsh weather of Mongolia, hence they naturally forced to produce wool that is finest and slimmest of its kind in an effort to keep themselves warm throughout the winter, and its quality and the pleasant feel is unparalleled to say the least. As you know, tropical regions such as Middle Eastern countries have also made camels an essential part of their culture and lifestyle, but those camels simply do not produce fine wool like Mongolian camels do.
Mongolia is a vast country with wide open steppes and plains. Its winter temperature ranges from -20 Celsius to -40 Celsius from southern to northern region. Nomadic locals in Gobi region nurture camels and live off of them, extracting wool and producing dairy products.
When winter passes and spring time approaches around May, camels start to shake off all the wool they grew during fall and winter, because they don’t need to bulk up with wool for the summer. That is when Nomadic farmers collect and gather all the excess wool from their camels and make it a raw material for the production of clothing accessories.
Needless to say that camel wool is initially a bit untidy. Due to the fact that Gobi is constantly windy and sand storming makes camel wool filled with sand and dirt. In the process of washing the newly extracted raw wool, all the sand, small rocks and dirt washes away, resulting in net weight reduction of 30-35%.
Have you ever come across to a “Camel Wool” product with an unrealistic cheap price tag? If so, I’m here to say that those are not real camel wool products. Like I said previously, only MONGOLIAN camels are capable of producing wool that is suitable to make clothing accessories. Camels from other parts of the world only produces thick hair kind of wool, which is used to make ropes and that sort of things, but NOT CLOTHING.
I know you can think of some manufacturers who try to duplicate anything in demand on the market? But Mongolian Camel wool is a unique kind, thus fakers can only try to copy its natural color. There are basically 2 types of natural color for camel wool: Beige and Brown. Most of the camels are Brown and only 10% of all the camels in Mongolia are Beige, and there are few milky and chocolate colored ones, but it’s rare.
Counterfeit camel wool yarn manufacturers mix up sheep wool and various other synthetic materials and dips it into a paint to make it appear as a natural camel wool, and it’s sad to say that only 3% of its net weight is an actual camel wool. There are tons of yarn manufacturers of this kind in China, and they produce it in a mass amount, which spreads around the globe under the name of “MONGOLIAN CAMEL WOOL”. It breaks my heart that our camel wool products are not making their way to the global users in their true form.
Fraudulent camel wool products usually sell for 2-3 times cheaper than the real ones, and like all the other fake products it has its down sides, like it doesn’t give you a pleasant feeling wearing them, feels rough and heavy, and because of the cheap dye it releases an unpleasant scent, and gives a rash or some other allergies. The real 100% Mongolian camel wool products on the other hand feel soft and pleasant when wearing them and it just… feels natural and warm. Once you try them, you will never want to wear anything else.
Unfortunately, there are not enough camels here in Mongolia to cover the world with natural camel wool. After all, we only have less than 300,000 camels, and we can only extract 5 kilograms of wool from a fully grown camel. Chinese counterfeit yarn makers come to Mongolia and outbid to buy most of our wool, leaving us with very little raw material to produce our own legitimate camel wool products.
As I mentioned previously, 30% of the net weight drains away
with water during initial washing process, and another 30% is lost during
combing and separation stage, 5-10% is lost during yarn making, and again 5-10%
of the yarn ends up being thrown away when manufacturing a final product. So,
do you think there is anyway that Camel wool products can be that cheap as
you’ve seen on the market? That is because they are really not CAMEL WOOL.
Camel wool is a fancy thing, rare and unique, and there’s only limited amount
of products that can be made each year.
