    Silk Seasons 1-3 DVD Overview

    However, the scale of production was always far smaller than for cultivated silks. There are several reasons for this: first, they differ from the domesticated varieties in colour and texture and are therefore less uniform; second, cocoons gathered in the wild have usually had the pupa emerge from them before being discovered so the silk thread that makes up the cocoon has been torn into shorter lengths; and third,Silk Seasons 1-3many wild cocoons are covered in a mineral layer that stymies attempts to reel from them long strands of silk.Thus, previously,[clarification needed] the only way to obtain silk suitable for spinning into textiles in areas where commercial silks are not cultivated was by tedious and labor-intensive carding.Several kinds of wild silk, which are produced by caterpillars other than the mulberry silkworm, have been known and used in China,Silk Seasons 1-3 DVDSouth Asia, and Europe since ancient times.
