More Camel Muzzles

This page was started because my friends in the online Nalbinding Get Together meetings ardently expressed their interest in seeing More Camel Muzzles. I had only used a small selection for my blog post, Nalbound Camel Muzzles, but sometimes research supplies more than you can feasibly use.

So here is simply a collection of images of (primarily nalbound) camel muzzles from the internet, roughly sorted by type. Some are embedded so the image shows, others do not embed and I have not obtained permission to publish the picture on my blog so you will have to follow the link to see the muzzled camel. If you wish to sponsor the costs of a particular stock photo, I’d be happy to add it and credit your support.

Note: While many of the photographs reference the use of the muzzles to prevent spitting or biting, another potential reason for the prevalence of nalbound camel muzzles at least in the UAE may be to keep them from eating windblown plastic. https://www.timeslive.co.za/sunday-times/lifestyle/2011-09-11-camels-like-it-clean/

This is Mammen stitch, but reversed. Most likely this is a reversal due to the photo being taken from a front facing camera and thus the photo is mirrored (instead of the unlikely possibility that this was nalbound left handed, meaning worked from right to left instead of the conventional left to right.)

This appears to be Mammen stitch, but reversed. This is possibly a reversal due to the photo being taken from a front facing camera and thus the photo is mirrored or the image was flipped before publishing (it is possible, but unlikely, that this was nalbound left handed, meaning worked from right to left instead of the conventional left to right.)

Tataouine, Tunesia – A camel head in 3/4 profile view wearing a loop & twist muzzle. This is actually more reflective of a basketry technique that produces the same structure. The two-ply is made as it is worked. One ply is used to connect to the previous row in a loop & twist stitch, then brought back up to continue plying until the next stitch. It results in a loop & twist with twined carrying thread. https://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-dromedaries-waiting-for-tourists-in-the-desert-near-tataouine-tunesia-56357423.html

Not Nalbound Muzzles:

And while one is searching the internet to find images of nalbound camel muzzles, of course, one does come across muzzles of other types. The following are muzzles that did not further the research, but still caught my eye as interesting.

– Ply-Split Muzzles:

I did not save many photos of ply-split muzzles.

This is an amazingly beautiful shot of a ply-split muzzle. Hit the download button and you get access to the high resolution zoomable photo. http://albumarium.com/55360a767670730d60b90600-camels/560046247670731cac0a0300
