THE BENEFITS OF MILK FIBER
Milk fiber is not only good for the environment; it has many beneficial factors, that makes it a very lucrative and sustainable fabric. The fabric is comfortable, light, and soft. Furthermore, it contains natural anti-bacterial elements and has a pH similar to the human skin. It is resistant to fungus, insects, and aging. This makes the fabric relevant, to produce pieces that can be worn for years. The milk fiber is, just like wool, very durable and has thermal insulation properties. This makes it a very relevant material for knitting that is not only aesthetic but also highly efficient. The soft, airy and feathery looks of the textile create endless possibilities, and in the future, we aim to create pieces that can be an alternative substitute for fur and wool, due to the aesthetics and thermal properties.
