Mulberry Silk is also known as Bombyx silk or Cultivated Silk. I considered it to be one of the best quality silks you can buy. It is produced from the silk worms of the Bombyx Mori Moth. Their diet consists of Mulberry leaves. Mulberry silk is produced in a controlled warm environment.
DYES: This combed top may retain some residual color from the dyeing process. Washing will not affect the level of color in your fiber. Since heavy metals are not used in these dyes some colors such as pink and turquoise may run slightly when washed. This is not a matter of too much dye being used. I recommend washing all hand dyed items separately.
WASHING: For washing this fiber please use room temperature or cool water. Silk DOES NOT like hot water!!
PHOTOGRAPHS: All photographs have been done with a flash setting. Please note that flash does make silk sparkle and can lighten the photo. I have made adjustments through a photo edit service to have the best color accuracy. PLEASE NOTE - that I have NO control over the differences from color monitor to color monitor. Mine is calibrated for color but that is not going to make your monitor more accurate or the brightness of your lighting in your computer.
STORAGE: All fiber is braided and sealed in plastic. This is great for saving space and for easy transport. If you are going to store your fiber, store it loosely and allow it to breathe. It is best to store away from heat, sunlight, and moisture.
