Yarn made from milk? Yes, it’s true. Bellatrista’s Milk Yarn is spun from 100% milk protein fiber and offers a luxuriously soft and silky alternative to wool.
Milk Bulky is a two-ply bulky-weight yarn that knits up thick and quick, making it ideal for scarves, cowls, afghans, and accessories that are extraordinarily soft and warm. And because it’s machine washable, it’s the perfect yarn for baby blankets!
Milk is luxuriously soft with an elegant shimmer that comes in fingering, DK, and bulky weights. This unique, renewable fiber combines properties of natural and synthetic yarns, including strength and durability. It’s naturally wrinkle-free, antibacterial and antifungal like bamboo, and exhibits a luxuriousness similar to silk.
As with all hand-dyed yarns, we recommend you purchase enough to complete your project in order to avoid reordering, thus minimizing the chance for color discrepancies inherent with different dye lots.
