Milk Protein (Top)
$7.00 – $14.00
100% Milk Protein Fibre. Also known as Latte.
Extremely clean combed top in natural ivory-cream. Staple length is about 4 inches.
One of the “new” man-made fibres, with a manufacturing process very similar to soy fibre. Said to be even softer than soy, and with good lustre. We can’t find much for references to describe the drape in finished garments but we are guessing it’s probably excellent.
Considered a protein fibre, so acid dyes will work very nicely. Probably so will natural dyes with the usual protein-fibre premordanting methods. Somebody told us that if you take the dyebath temperatures too close to boiling, this fibre will dissolve. Urban myth? You tell us!
