Mulberry Silk

Mulberry Silk comes from the silk worm. The breeding of the silk worm in order to produce raw silk is called sericulture. The larvae of the silk worms have a preference for white mulberry leaves, hence their name. They spin their cocoon around them to protect them during their metamorphosis into a moth. The cocoon is made up of a single thread of raw silk around 900 m long. Several strands of silk are used to create a thread.
