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 Fingering is a machine-washable yarn with a luxuriously soft hand and an elegant shimmer that is perfect for lacy shawls. When held double with other yarns, like Lana Grossa's Bottone, it adds subtle sheen.
Bellatrista's Milk Yarn 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.
