Cocoon story

It's a story behind a story.We all know silk very well.And also we know how it got acquired from the silk worm.Various photos depicting different stages are here gotten while visiting a farm recently.The Picture equals a thousand words.Let them tell you something through these ones.Silk industry worth almost $200 to $500 million each year.

  4. I have read about Ahimsa silk which doesn't require any cruelty for the cocoons of silkworms.

  5. Wow, I didn't know the silkworms were so big. Fascinating.

  6. I saw this process in motion during one of our many trips to Turkey.
    The ladies who were spinning the cocoons worked st an incredible speed.
    we then went on to watcch some more ladies makingsilk rugs.I would have
    loved to have bought one but we had already purchased a beautiful pure
    wool Turkish rug, which still holds pride of place in the sitting room.
    Best wishes,
    ABCW team.
