A few years ago, we started searching for a small quantity milk fabric supplier in Vietnam. The journey has been challenging because yarn suppliers have very high minimum order quantities (MOQ). For example a typical MOQ for casein yarn is 5,000 kg. This quantity will make around 15,000 meters of fabric. Is it too much for you? If yes, don’t worry, we have a solution. We have available stock of Eco yarns in our sister company www.greenyarn.vn to accommodate small orders. Contact us if you would like to work with a small quantity milk fabric supplier in Vietnam.
What exactly is Milk fabric? Milk contains protein and butterfat. Once the butterfat is removed, the protein that is left over can be transformed into fibers. In scientific terms milk fabric is made from regenerated protein fibers (polymerized casein). Milk fibre fabric is not very durable and wrinkles easily, but has a pH similar to human skin and possesses anti-bacterial properties. Companies like QMILK in Germany and Swicofil in Switzerland have improved the quality of Milk fabrics and we can help you source it from Vietnam. Read more below about the history and science of Milk fabric.
Let’s put milk fabric in perspective. There are natural fibers that come from plants such as cotton or hemp. Then you have natural fibers that come from animals such as wool from sheep or silk from silk worms. Then you have manufactured fibers that are either synthetic or regenerated. Synthetic fibers are like polyester and nylon. Regenerated fibers are like viscose and bamboo. There are two types (sources) of regenerated fibers: protein or cellulose. Milk fiber is a regenerated fiber made from protein.
Milk fiber was first produced and patented in Italy in 1935 by Antonio Ferretti. It was sold under the name Lanital. It was created under a national self sufficiency drive and was intended to capitalize on previous successes with rayon. Milk fibers enjoyed a brief period of success in the 1930s,40s and 50s in Europe.
The popularity of milk fibers declined rapidly once fully-synthetic fibers like polyester, acrylic and nylon were developed. Fully synthetic fibers were able to significantly undercut milk fiber on price and were more durable. During the 2010s several producers tried to reintroduce milk fibers for commercial production and made considerable progress. Nowadays most casein fiber is mixed with acrylonitrile, which is the same substance that’s used to make acrylic clothing. Therefore, if Milk fiber is mixed with acrylonitrile then milk fiber is not a truly organic fiber.
It takes approximately 100 pounds of milk to produce 3 pounds of milk fiber. A simplified overview of the process is as follows. Acid is mixed with milk to extract the casein protein. Water is evaporated to form casein crystals. The casein is hydrated to a thick syrup and extruded through spinnerets. The resulting fiber is passed through a hardening bath. The continuous fiber is then cut to the desired length.
