    Summary ofSilk Seasons 1-3 DVD

    Commercial Silk Seasons 1-3 DVD originate from reared silkworm pupae, which are bred to produce a white-colored silk thread with no mineral on the surface. The pupae are killed by either dipping them in boiling water before the adult moths emerge or by piercing them with a needle. These factors all contribute to the ability of the whole cocoon to be unravelled as one continuous thread, permitting a much stronger cloth to be woven from the silk. Wild silks also tend to be more difficult to dye than silk from the cultivated silkworm.A technique known as demineralizing allows the mineral layer around the cocoon of wild silk moths to be removed,Silk Seasons 1-3leaving only variability in color as a barrier to creating a commercial silk industry based on wild silks in the parts of the world where wild silk moths thrive, such as in Africa and South America.Genetic modification of domesticated silkworms is used to facilitate the production of more useful types of silk.
