Silk Cocoons

Silk Cocoons

Cultivated Silk cocoons are little bundles of potential! 

 

Silk takes acid dye readily, for vivid saturated colors, or can be left as undyed creamy white. 

 

These hollow oblong cocoons can be cut apart to make sculptural jewelry or other small art pieces.  And yes, you will find the occupant worm inside!

 

Once they are degummed, silk cocoons can release their fine filaments for spinning into smooth yarns or stretching into hankies or caps. Our cocoons have been left intact, which means that the silk filament has not been severed, and the worm remains inside.
