Hesperios Knit Library Artifact

People’s Republic of China

Humans have been cultivating silk for 5000 years. The name for this process is sericulture. The term conjures a team of dedicated farmers tending to plants with silken leaves, but silk is not a product of plants but of insects. Silk is the material silkworms produce to build their chrysalis. Within a cocoon made from one continuous 1000-foot strand—one of the strongest materials on earth—silkworms metamorphize into moths. Silkworms eat only mulberry leaves. In China there are fifteen species, of which four species, Morus alba, M. multicaulis, M. atropurpurea, and M. mizuho are cultivated for sericulture. It would be poetic if the moths returned the favor to the mulberry, but the chief pollinating agent of mulberry is wind.
