Product Information
Specification

1 bag of 5 Eri Silk Cocoons.

 

Eri silk comes from the caterpillar of Samia cynthia ricini, found in northeast India. The name “eri” is derived from the Assamese word “era”, which means “castor”, as the silkworm feeds on castor plants.

It is also known as 'Peace Silk' because it is a non-violent silk which does not require the moth to be killed to extract the fibre. The moth leaves the cocoon after spinning and flies off.
