Does Silk Come From Silkworms
We extract silk from silk worms in a disturbing way. We boil the cocoons to unravel silk, killing the silkworms inside. Silkworms, the offspring of moths, spew out thread from tiny holes in their jaws and spin thread into their egg-bearing cocoons. Silk farmer snatches his cocoon from him once the silkworm completes its cocoon, preventing the shrunken chrysalis carefully encased inside from hatching into a moth.
