Silk Cocoons in Turkey: How to process silk

Share this with your friends

Our travel club for photo lovers and solo travelers really got a kick out of this place.  We visited a carpet factory on our trip to Turkey and got to see how they spin silk from the cocoons of silk worms. Really interesting to see how they do it and was just one of many interesting things we learned about Turkish carpet making. They first have to soak the cocoons in hot water to extract the silk without breaking. From one cocoon they get 1 mile of silk fiber!
