Analysis

Camelhide is one of many textiles with stats almost identical to plainleather, only diverging in having better heat insulation and slightly higher market value and beauty factor. In this way, it can be considered the heat focused counterpart to Bluefur

As it is 6-way tied for the 11th most protective textile in the game, it is largely irrelevant as protective clothing after the very early game, and even at that point there are many other options that are just as good or better. However, camelhide's heat insulation is exceptional, in a 3-way tie for second most heat insulative. This means that unlike comparably protective textiles, it can retain its utility into the mid-game in some biomes. Transitioning to Devilstrand, which is as insulative and significantly more protective, should be made a priority however. When the absolute maximum heat insulation is not a necessity, more protective textiles should be adopted as soon as possible.

For use in furniture, it only has a slightly improved beauty factor than other common textiles, but its mid-game redundancy as clothing makes it a decent choice for improving furniture beauty. Its inferiority to wools in this regard and the commonness of wools compared to camelhide limits its long term utility however.
