Qmilch GmbH, a German brand engaged in fibre production and known worldwide for quality and naturalness, has innovated Qmilk – the new generation fibre that uses milk as the raw material.
“Qmilk combines physical properties such as purity, softness and absorbency and is manufactured using an environment-friendly process with no waste, a production time of only one hour and using only a maximum of 2 litres of water,” Anke Domaske, Founder of Qmilch, told fibre2fashion.
“For the manufacturing of Qmilk, casein is produced from raw milk, which is no longer marketable and may not be used for consumption,” reveals Ms. Domaske.
“The excellent moisture management ability of Qmilk prevents the growth of bacteria in a natural way and is also suitable for allergy sufferers. Moisture is easily absorbed and gives the skin a pleasant freshness. Skin irritation can be reduced by the smooth surface,” she informs.
“Qmilk can mix well with other fibres. A twenty-percentage blend with other textile fibres guarantees outstanding properties and improves their performance and allows unique combinations,” she adds.
Qmilk is the world’s first man-made fibre that is produced without any chemicals, and targeted energy. It provides comfort, combined with technical performance and sustainability, and has thus set new standards for the man-made fibre industry.
Qmilk has applications in apparel, home textiles, automotive, and medical fields.
