That of making wool made from milk was an idea of the engineer Antonio Ferretti di Gavardo (BS), patented in 1935 under the name of Lanital. Lanital was partly forgotten due to the emergence of new types of chemical fibers obtained with synthetic polymers, derived from petroleum, which completely obliterated the fabric created with casein from the market. This up to the last decade, during which, thanks to a renewed attention and sensitivity to sustainability, it has been rediscovered and improved to get back into vogue in the manufacture of clothing.
Hydrating - it’s the only existing fiber to hydrate and nourish the wearer's skin, thanks to the milk amino acids present in the fiber itself.
Antibacterial activity - it’s naturally antibacterial. In particular, it has antibacterial effects against Escherichia coli and staphylococcus aureus. The fiber, in fact, does not allow multiplication of bacteria inside, leaving a feeling of freshness for the duration of the wear.
Absorbs moisture - it easily absorbs moisture and it’s therefore particularly suitable for making underwear, sportswear, home textiles, but also technical fabrics.
Natural protection against UV radiations - Tests carried out by the manufacturer have shown that milk fiber is a natural screen against UV radiations.
Dermatologically tested - it’s dermatologically tested for compatibility with the skin and the body. For its construction are used only natural and renewable raw materials and it’s therefore free of optical brighteners components that can create an environmental risk.
Compostable - it’s completely biodegradable, providing a positive contribution to the environment not only during the production cycle but also throughout the entire life cycle.
