This is a bag of a half dozen acid-dyed cultivated silk cocoons. The dye takes in a mottled manner and is quite pretty. The silkworm body remains in the cocoon but can easily be cut out if desired. Silkworm cocoons make fabulous embellishments and can be used in spinning, weaving, jewelry, collage, and in many other applications. Please wash in cool water and dry promptly.
