Milk Protein or Casein has been discovered in many churches from the 14th and 15th centuries used in paintings, however as a fibre it was used in many household items and fabric during the 1930’s and 1940’s. It was used as a substitute for wool however after the invention of nylon it fell out of use.
Amazingly whilst the milk protein is being made into fibre micro-zinc ions are added which makes this fibre somewhat anti bacterial.
It’s an expensive process, it takes 100 pounds of skim milk to make 3 pounds of fibre. That’s a lot of milk. So enjoy this ancient/modern luxury fibre!
