Amazing silk facts I

We have essentially know about the silk producing process, and how to inspect the high quality silk bedding sheets, and I am sure you must have not heard any other amazing facts about the silk, share them with you!

A silkworm multiplies it weight 10,000 times from time it is hatched until about 1 month later when it has enough energy stored to start spinning its cocoon.

The fluffy white cocoon spun by a silkworm is one long continuous silk filament that when unwound is usually between 600 and 900 meters long or as long as 1,600 yards. That’s pretty long.

Four to eight of the silk filaments are twisted together to obtain one strand of silk thread. No wonder silk is so expensive!
New to you, right? we have also others!
