Why Silk Isn’t Vegan
Silk production requires killing the caterpillars, thus silk isn’t vegan. Collect cocoons with silkworms inside of them. Sort cocoons by color, size, shape, etc. The cocoons are boiled alive to extract the thin strands of silk. In general, 15 silkworms are killed to make a gram of silk thread, and 10,000 are killed to make a silk sari.
