Silkworm spins a cocoon from a single strand of silk, two to three thousand feet long when it has had its fill. Cocoons are steamed to kill the pupae inside, for silkworm would break the silk if it began to emerge as a moth. Then, place cocoon in hot water instead of tea, dissolving the sticky coating that binds the silk. After that, unwind the single strand that makes up each cocoon.
