These GRADE A de-gummed silk cocoons are a totally natural product that can be spun into yarn with just a little stretching. You can create some lovely fun art yarns plus they are also ready to dye if required. The de-gumming process releases the sticky substance that holds the silk strands/ cocoon together resulting in a rough cocoon shape but much more fluffy!

Mulberry Silk is also known as cultivated silk and is the best quality silk that you can buy. It is produced from the silk worms of the Bombyx Mori Moth whose diet consists of Mulberry leaves - hence the name.
