Milk Fabric

Milk fiber goes back to World War I, when the Germans, interested in other sources for fabric, discovered milk's potential for cloth. To create the fiber, liquid milk is dried and its proteins extracted. The separated proteins are then dissolved in a chemical solution and placed into a machine that essentially whirls the fibers together. The fibers can then be spun into yarn and woven into fabric. Milk fabric holds dye, is breathable and it captures the moisture to make skin tender and smooth like after taking a milk bath. The drawback is that it wrinkles easily after washing and should be ironed. Machine washing is not recommended.
