When I went to pick up the kid (the human one) from summer camp the other day, I was greeted with a gift. Not your typical camp crafts, this gift. No paperweight for this mom. No, no, wait for it. Camel fiber! They'd gone to a local petting zoo and the child thought to grab a handful of camel lint for mom. How sweet is that? After cleaning it up there wasn't much left to spin, but I did get a couple of yards out of it. It was every bit as soft as alpaca. Cool.
