Wild Silk Cocoons - Eri (red) - 7g

Price: $4.50

The Philosamima ricini wild silk worm spins eri silk. When this silkworm spins his cocoon, he spins for a while, then takes a break, repeating this process several times until his cocoon is completed.  Because of these breaks, the cocoon is not one continuous filament as you'll find with the other cocoons, so eri silk is seldom reeled.

To be able to import these valuable wild silk cocoons from India, the cocoon has been slit and the pupa removed.  They are terrific for educational purposes.

The cocoons are not treated with any chemicals.

7g (approximately 10 cocoons)

Color:  natural rusty-red color
