You may be wondering what is milk yarn? Milk yarn is a bio-synthetic yarn made by dehydrating and skimming milk, then extracting the proteins. The proteins can then be liquidized and spun.
It is lustrous and soft, which are generally properties of natural fibers but with benefits of synthetics. It produces a strong fiber that is eco-friendly, hypoallergenic and feels great next to the skin. It is wonderful for babies, children and sensitive skin. It is also antibacterial and anti-fungal because amino acids are present in the fiber.
Yarn fibers are usually categorized as either animal, plant or synthetic (man made). Synthetic yarns can be further broken down into petroleum based (e.g. nylon, acrylics) or bio-synthetics. Milk yarn is a bio-synthetic and has been around since the 1930s!
