Feel a wonderful wearing comfort of this skin-friendly yarn made of milk protein! A pH of the milk fibers is 6,8 which corresponds with our healthy skin pH. The milk fibers are a natural raw material, which doesn’t contain harmful substances. It even has a light antibacterial effect. These modern fibers are very comfortable and absorb the humidity very well, i.e. the material takes out the human moisture and spread it further on the surface. After that this moisture is being shared over the surface and evaporates. The Tambo yarn is soft like cashmere and suits for all people who are allergic to pet dander.

The question immediately suggested itself: is it a waste to use foodstuffs for the fibers production? Clearly, the answer is “no”.

To produce the milk fibers it is used only that milk which doesn’t complaint with food standards and that’s why is not admitted for the food trading. Food quality is a priority in Germany. There is no step in a value chain that wouldn’t be controlled, analyzed and inspected.

There are ca. 1,9 Mio tones of milk in Germany yearly, which are not used as foodstuffs in trading and discarded. Besides it is used only 2-4 liters of water to produce 1 kg of the milk fibers, whereas cotton needs up to 23.000 liters for 1 kg for its production.

To make a milk fiber you need a constituent of milk which is called casein. Warm airflow hardens the milk and builds casein on the top of the milk. This layer is taken off and dried. So you can extract the casein as powder. This powder is being mixed with other natural raw ingredients such as beeswax, wheat bran and water, then heat and kneaded. After that the gotten mass is pressed through the spin nozzles. The first fibers occur after the indurating in a chemical bath.

The Tambo yarn you can order online at any time.


You can wash you Tambo article in the washing machine at the 30°. Please use exclusively a detergent for wool and dry the article possibly only placed lying down on a terry towel to avoid deformation! You also can dry your fabric on the foam hangers but no way directly close to the heat source!


Please do not forget that every monitor has its typical colors of display what can cause color divergence with the original tinting color.

It is important that you have enough of the knitting yarn for the desired knitting model. Best of all is when you begin with the knitting right after you have received the yarn. So you can estimate if you have ordered enough of the yarn and could then immediately reorder. Furthermore you could check if there are sufficient quantities of the yarn of the same batch in stock. Please note that despite similar colors there can be differences in the colors of the yarn from the different batches.
