Yellow Mulberry silk combed top per ounce

Product Description

 Silk colored by nature.

Mulberry silk comes from the Bombyx mori silkworm who dines exclusively on Mulberry leaves. Mulberry silk worms are raised in captivity by worm farmers or sericulturists.  These cocoons are degummed (the removal of sericin...sericin is the "glue" that gives the cocoon its shape)  before the worm has a chance to move through the pupa phase. The pupa releases an enzyme that makes a hole in the cocoon for its escape.  These enzymes cause the silk to weaken and break.  That's the reason they degum the cocoon with the worm still in it.   This silk is lustrous and extremely soft with a micron of 10 to 15 and takes dyes beautifully.
