Milk Cotton DK

Milk Cotton DK

Milk Cotton is a beautifully soft cotton, so called because the yarn contains 30% milk protein. In order for yarn to be produced from the milk protein casein the milk must be dehydrated and skimmed. The protein can then be extracted. It is then fluidised and in this form it can be spun and blended with other fibres such as cotton.
