But milk made into socks? A pair of pants? A gown? Its almost like nylon and a silk, but it is pure milk. I would like to discuss about the topics given below: i. Main process of Milk Protein Fibre. ii. Functional compare of milk protein fiber fabrics. iii. Property comparison between milk protein fiber and other textile fiber. iv. Milk Yarn. v. Kinds and content of amino-acid in Cyarn milk protein fiber. vi. Good moisture, Absorption and Conduction. vii. Antibacterial. Background: We use usually cotton fabric, silk fabric and so on are since human civilization. The Milk Fabric is new born fabric.
It will get a change it is the thought of the researcher. This fabric is luxurious, comfortable, healthy and fashionable. It will make a history in The Textile World. It may make thousands of people as jobholder and may remove our penurious. History of Milk Fabric: Milk fabric has been around since the 1930s but was always produced in unecological ways that used a lot of chemicals. Anke Domaske (28) a young fashion designer from the German city of Hanover has developed a fabric called QMilch made from high concentrations of the milk protein casein ” the first man-made fiber produced entirely without chemicals.
It feels like silk and it doesnt smell ” you can wash it just like anything else, Domaske said. This news was published last October, 10th, 2011on a Germans national and well-known news paper named”EYE WITNESS NEWS. Types of Milk Fabrics: Milk fabrics are classified according to its component. The classifications are given below with is components ?

It combines the advantages of natural fiber and synthetic fiber the protein fiber is a kind of fresh fiber with healthy function.

In April 2004, it passed Oeko-Tex Standard 100 green certification for the international ecological textiles. Cyarn milk protein fiber is healthy for skin, comfortable, with bright colors due to good dyeability, etc. The milk protein fiber can be spun purely or spun with cashmere, silk, spun silk, cotton, wool, ramie and other fibers to weave fabrics with the features of milk protein fibre. It can also be used to create top-grade underwear, shirts, T shirts, loungewear, etc. to satisfy peoples pursuit of comfortable, healthy, superior and fashionable garments.
The milk protein fiber is a fresh product as a superior green, healthy and comfortable fibre, milk protein fiber will certainly become popular goods in the market as new favorite of the Textile. ?Kinds and content of amino-acid in Cyarn milk protein fiber Kinds of amino-acidActual dataKinds of amino-acidActual data Aspartic acid2. 039Methionine0. 7587 Threonine0. 9918Isoleucine1. 101 Serine1. 429Leucine2. 493 Glutamic acid5. 549Tyrosine1. 572 Pro. 2. 529Phe. 1. 331 Glycocoll0. 5259Lysine2. 289 Alanine0. 9037Histidine0. 8602 Cystine0. 0815Arginine0. 9246 Val. 1. 71Tryptophan0. 1831.
Tested by SGS-CSTC Standards Technical Services Com. Ltd Shanghai Branch, the content of amino acid is 30. 34%. ?Good moisture, absorption and conduction: The fiber base body (AN), the double composition and the vertical fibers does not have the regular channels, which makes the milk fiber have as fine moisture absorption as natural fiber and better moisture conduction as synthetic fibers, and is both comfortable and permeable. ?Antibacterial ItemTest result Golden yellow staphylococcus (ATCC NO. 6538)Restrain >3. 86(99. 9986) Sterilization > 1. 96(98. 9011) colon bacillus (ATCC NO.8099)Restrain >5. 17(99. 9993).

Conclusion: The milk fabric is the gift by modern textile science. Its properties are finer than all other fabrics. Its more comfortable to use and also luxuries.
Not harmful for environment and suitable for human body. It contains such kind of amino bacteria that helps to protect the germs of human body. Milk fabric produced by milk but it has no scent of milk. If we start to produce milk fabric in our Bangladesh we can earn a large amount of foreign money. Its like wearing a milk bath. It is said by Brad Caudill, executive director of the Tulare County Farm Bureau Id rather drink my milk than wear it References: 1.
