Silk #1

Silk #1 

A young lady in Laos dyeing silk thread. The PiPs show silk cocoons being heated in water and silkworm moths. The silkworms encase themselves in a cocoon of silk thread and, to remove it, the cocoon needs to be heated in water. Long ago, when I was a kid, many of us used to raise silkworms and remove the thread just this way - I suspect few kids do it now that electronic games are here!

Silk production still very much remains a labour intensive process, and a lot of hard work is involved.

Great pictures of silk making. Years ago I was also able to visit a silk factory during my trip to China. It was very interesting...
