The information was collected through personal interview and observation among Raika camel breeders in Pali district of Rajasthan. Though, wool is not a product of very high economic value among the products of camel production system but breeders add value to it by investing their free time and prepare/ get prepared ropes, rugs and carpets from it. These are important household items for camel breeding profession and their day to day life.
