Silk Cocoons - Hot Air Ballons

Price: $7.95

The cocoon is the metamorphosis home of the Bombyx mori silkworm. It is spun in one continuous thread almost a mile long.

Our A1 quality cocoons are whole and intact (the mummified pupa is inside, creating a rattling-sound when the cocoon is shaken).

The cocoons vary in size. Most of them are an oval shape. You can reel (unwind) the silk--putting multiple filaments together to create silk yarn or silk thread.  

Or you can cut, dye, paint, embellish with beads or sew the silk cocoons to the end of a fringe--just a few of the creative things you can do with cocoons!  Looking for ideas? Check out Treenway Silks' Pinterest Board "What to do with a Silk Cocoon"

 

100% Bombyx Silk (also called cultivated or mulberry silk) hand-dyed in Colorado.

10 Cocoons (approximately 10grams) package
