How Mulberry Silk is made, from start to finish
You will have already know all about silk's incredible properties from our last blog.But you may not know how it is made - so here's glimpse behind the scenes.
How is mulberry silk so incredibly smooth?
the famous smooth finish achieved in making All silk comes from silkworms. Regular silk and “wild” silk come from silkworms that have matured into moths and feed on a variety of food sources, which produces a silk that’s somewhat coarse and prone to variations. Mulberry silk, on the other hand, is produced through a much more rigorous and controlled process that creates highly uniform strands which are free of “joints” for an incredibly smooth finish.
Crafting the fine strands that deliver such impressive benefits is a delicate matter, and it all starts with the special diet that is fed to silkworms.
The first step involves laying the eggs of unhatched silkworms on mulberry leaves, so that is the first food they eat when they hatch. After filling up on the leaves, the silkworms move to the branches of the plant to start generating ultra-fine strands of silk that they weave into their cocoons.
Once the cocoons are formed, they are collected and immersed in hot water to release the individual strands which are then spun into mulberry silk. Our silk production partners in China's famous mulberry silk region ensure that each step is overseen with precision to create the most luxurious, softest silk, uniform in tone and of the highest quality, ready to grace your home and enhance your health and sleep.
