MILK FABRIC
ABSTRACT:
The milk fabric is new born fabric. The milk protein fabric moistens skin and it is healthy and bacteriostatic - it is the perfect material to produce underwear and socks, pants, long-sleeve T’s and jackets also. The important ingredients of milk protein fiber are milk casein proteins, which can nourish and lubricate the skin. The milk protein contains the natural humectant factor, which can capture the moisture and maintain skin’s moisture to make the skin tender and smooth and reduce wrinkles. Its cost is in our capability. Introduction:

Milk churns into butter, yes. It curdles into cheese, OK. But milk made into socks? A pair of pants? A gown? It’s almost like nylon and a silk, but it is pure milk. I would like to discuss about the topics given below: i.Main process of Milk Protein Fibre.

ii.Functional compare of milk protein fiber fabrics.
iii.Property comparison between milk protein fiber and other textile fiber. iv.Milk Yarn.
v.Kinds and content of amino-acid in Cyarn milk protein fiber. vi.Good moisture, Absorption and Conduction.
vii.Antibacterial.
Background:
We use usually cotton fabric, silk fabric and so on are since human civilization. The Milk Fabric is new born fabric. “It will get a change” it is the thought of the researcher. This fabric is luxurious, comfortable, healthy and fashionable. It will make a history in The Textile World. It may make thousands of people as jobholder and may remove our penurious. History of Milk Fabric:

Milk fabric has been around since the 1930s but was always produced in unecological ways that used a lot of chemicals. Anke Domaske (28) a young fashion designer from the German city of Hanover has developed a fabric called QMilch made from high concentrations of the milk protein casein -- the first man-made fiber produced entirely without chemicals. "It feels like silk and it doesn't smell — you can wash it just like anything else," Domaske said. This news was published last October, 10th, 2011on a Germans’ national and well-known news paper named—EYE WITNESS NEWS. Types of Milk Fabrics:

Main process of milk protein fiber:
To make milk protein fiber, milk is first dewatered and skimmed, then by means of new bio-engineering technique, the protein spinning fluid suitable for a wet spinning process is manufactured, then finally the new high-grade textile fiber is made. It combines the advantages of natural fiber and synthetic fiber - the protein fiber is a kind of fresh fiber with healthy function. The process flowchart is given below--
