Laines du Nord has created a line of biological and healthy spun yarns derived from milk. These spun yarns are particularly suitable for skin contact and above all, for babies. Described as a ‘fresh fibre’, milk fibres are made from the protein Casein, which is attributed to being beneficial to our health & well-being. It has the ability to attract and hold water molecules from the surrounding environment known as wicking, allowing it to absorb moisture making it completely skin friendly. The combination of luxury wool & such a special fibre as milk provides us with a stunningly soft yarn – perfect for babies and anyone that desires sumptuous softness.
