Why blend these fibers?
Baby camel and merino are amazingly soft together, however both fibers are fairly similar in behavior. Rambouillet’s 3D crimp adds a lot of cohesion and elasticity, to make spinning easier and create a blend with better memory.
One of the things that helps create a balanced blend with high durability is to use fibers with similar fiber diameters (measured in micron or µm). This is why all of the fibers in this blend are in the 17-18 micron range.
