How Are Silk Fibres Obtained

How is silk fibre obtained?

In fact, the best-known silk fibers are obtained from the cocoons of the larvae of the mulberry silkworm Bombyx mori reared in captivity. Silk fibers are produced on demand from special silk glands of several groups of invertebrate animals such as silk moths. Silkworms spin cocoons for the vulnerable pupa stage. Silk farmers throw the cocoons into boiling water, separating out the silk fibers. Finally, you can weave the silk fibers obtained into clothes.
