Have you heard about QMilch? It’s fabric made from milk! From spoiled, curdled milk! Right here, you can see a very brief description of this fiber. In this picture, you can see various steps in the process that goes from liquid milk to spun qmilch.
While I can’t find a source to purchase the yarn made from milk, I feel sure it will make its way to retail stores in time. Bamboo, corn, and soy are three of the more recent additions to the yarn market over the past few years. Each fiber has its proponents. Producing milk fiber is quite expensive at the present time. But, with more research and a growing number of designers interested in using milk yard goods, the production costs will go down. This is certainly a sustainable fiber source! I look forward to having a chance to work with milk fiber (qmilch) in the future. How about you?
