Camel Wool Yarn!
It strikes me that my secret friend the snow leopard has this Secret Pal thing planned ahead...
Yesterday, I received a package from the Snow Leopard Trust, containing Camel Wool Yarn, an artist´s drawing of a Snow Leopard and a nice letter about how purchasing this yarn helps save the Snow Leopard, preserve their habitat and improve lives of families in Mongolia. And the card contained a personal message for me from my secret pal :)
Wow! I´m amazed, gobsmacked, stunned. What a wonderful concept!
The Camel Wool yarn is lovely and soft, a nice brown colour. It´s made from 100% camel wool, from camels in the South Gobi desert, and made by women from the region.
Thank you so much for this wonderful gift, my secret pal! I will be thinking long and hard to find a project for this yarn :)
