Milk Protein fibre is made from casein which is derived from milk. It has many properties similar to wool fibre and can be carded into any other fibre to add interest.
With the look and feel of cotton, and with a slight sheen, the spun yarn can be used for lingerie, tea shirts, scarves and fabrics with a soft drape, see Ann Cook's example of her hand-dyed, handspun yarn in our image below. As this fibre is protein it is best dyed with Acid dyes, as in our bottom image
. Worked with a felting needle, casein can be felted into three dimensional objects.
