A fiber made from dairy milk. The milk protein is extracted from dehydrated milk and is made of waste milk that is spoiled or contaminated and not fit for consumption. Milk yarn is smooth & delicate for your skin and is to be considered as antibacterial. Fabrics made of milk (casein) yarns are comfortable. The processing of the milk protein into fiber has no effect on the environment so fiber can be considered as a “green product”.
Merino comes from the Merino sheep and is famous for its exceptional properties like its fantastic softness, shine and breathability. Merino wool is softer, finer and more sensitive than many other fabrics. Merino wool breathes and manages moisture better than any other fiber, it keeps you warm & cool, it does not itch and is odor resistance.
