"a camel-hair jacket over his pyjamas"

Robert Meshekoff Original 100% Camel Hair Amicale

 

Camel hair, mixed with wool, is used to make a light-tan coloured material known as camel-hair which is used in the manufacture of coats and jackets for both men and women.

The hair may be collected by combing or shearing Bactrian camels, or when it is shed naturally through the moulting process. Only the finer, softer hairs from the camel's undercoat are used to make camel-hair. A single camel may produce up to 5 lbs of hair in one year.
