Cocoons - degummed

White Mulberry cocoons produced by silk worms.  These are empty.  A hole has been cut to release contents.  The worms produce sericin as they spin the cocoons.  It stiffens the fibre.  These have been de-gummed.  They are soft. Cocoons may be used for felting, hand-spinning, and paper-making.

For information about silkworms and cocoons check out wormspit.com
