Silk worms, domesticated for generations, are incapable of surviving in the wild. To produce a kilo of silk, 6000 silk worms are needed which will consume 200 kilos of mulberry tree leaves. They produce a filament that can measure up to 2 kms long but on average is about 1 km in length. 5 to 8 filaments are wound together to obtain a thread. Today most silk production takes place in Asia.
. Silk is extremely easy to knit and is particularly pleasant to touch through its softness and sheen, and the resulting garment or accessory will always be elegant.
