Our unique hosiery range is made with a unique yarn which incudes milk protein. In brief, the process involves removing water from milk (yes, it is drinking milk!) and the remaining protein fluid is then spun into a high-grade fibre. This fibre is the mixed with other relevant unique yarns.
Milk fibre was granted the International Ecological Textile Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Authentication in April 2004.
Milk yarn contains amino acids beneficial to health, some of the properties include:
- Natural humectant factor; skin nourishing and silky smooth
- Hygroscopic as it absorbs moisture
- Glossy and luxurious in appearance, feel and comfort
