Organic Wild Silk Cocoons - Tussah/Tasar - 200g

Price: $80.00

The Antherea mylitta wild silk worm spins tussah silk, also known as tasar silk in India. These are the Raily Tasar variety of cocoons.

To be able to import these valuable wild silk cocoons from India, the cocoon has been slit and the pupa removed or the moth has already emerged, so these silk cocoons are not suitable for reeling, but they are wonderful for educational purposes.

The cocoons are not treated with any chemicals.

200 grams

Color:  natural
