The Sustainable MilkFibe™ T-Shirt


Our newest T-shirt MilkFibe™, is made from soured milk waste that is collected from industrial farms and is unfit for human consumption. The casein protein is separated from the liquid, it is then washed, dried and ground into a fine powder (much like a protein powder) and then dissolved and wet spun into a fiber. We blend the milk fibers with micro modal, which is a beechwood fiber, responsibly sourced from Lenzing.

Since MilkFibe™ is a fabric made with regenerated protein fibers, it behaves much like other animal fibers. It's comfortable, breathable, moisture wicking and naturally antibacterial. It's another great addition to a more conscious wardrobe choice and will go great alongside one of our other FoodFibe™ shirts. This is our softest shirt yet.
