When my sister and I got our of our cars in the nursing home parking lot for a Dad visit, Sis handed our my mother's coat. That was such a sweet surprise for me. My mother died 6 years ago, and my having a few special things that belonged to her brings me so much joy. I know the camel hair coat my sister gave to me has to be over 20 years old. When I tried on Mom's camel hair coat, which is soft as can be, it felt like Mom was hugging me. I swear I felt her hug when I put on her coat. I have to say the coat looks so cute with jeans and black boots. It is a perfect fit too. I will have my mom's coat dry-cleaned, and I will wear it as often as I can. I am going to go to the closet now and put Mom's coat on to get another hug from her. I have a feeling I will be putting on Mom's coat many times today. Note: No camels are harmed to make a camel hair coat. Camels shed, and those shed hairs are collected and used to make camel hair clothing items.

That was a sweet thing your sister did. I'm sure your mom will be hugging you more often now.

Yes, if a camel were hurt in any way just to make a camel hair coat, I would not wear the coat. I will treasure this coat.

I think you will have that one day, my friend. My mom lived to age 92, which means I got to have her around for many years. Dad is age 97.

What a wonderful surprise, your sister giving you your mother's camel-hair coat:) It will be such a comfort to know, who that coat belonged to! I have a shabby looking little dress, my mother use to wear. I wouldn't part with it, for anything!:(

@LadyDuck Same with my mom. She wore fur at times too. I think back in the day, animal welfare was not as big a concern as it is today.
