Mulberry Silk (Bombyx Mori):
Mulberry silk is pure white and is from silkworms fed on Mulberry leaves. Silk is pure luxury. Silk has many qualities. As well as its natural sheen, it is strong, resistant to pilling, and the long fibres make it easy to spin. It looks stunning when dyed and blends beautifully with other fibres. These silk caps (bells) are made from cultivated cacoons degummed and stretched over a wood board shaped like a bell. They consist of extremely thin layers; each layer is one cocoon. Mainly used for spinning and as filler in Silk Quilting.
