Fiber Characteristics

CAMEL (Camel/Alpaca/Llama/Vicuna)

Natural Fiber

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Lustrous
  • Strong in relation to its diameter
  • Good insulation quality

 

MAJOR END USES:

  • Apparel - sweaters, socks, accessories, shawls, coats, and suits
  • Home Fashions - Blankets, throws

Comments - Vicuna is the world´s most valuable fiber. Consequently, items containing vicuna are very expensive. Generally, the camel fibers are used only in their natural colors, because of resistance to dyes. Dry cleaning is recommended for all of the Camel Family of fibers.

MEN'S HORIZONTAL DR. COOL SHIRT
This shirt is constructed using Coolcore's patented chemical-free moisture and sweat activated material to make sweat work for you. Rather than a simple wicking technology, the material delivers three distinct functions: wicking, moisture circulation, and regulated evaporation to reduce the fabric's surface temperature by up to 30%. Unlike other workout shirts Dr. Cool is chemical-free so that cooling benefits last the life of the shirt.
