Why Silk Is So Expensive
A set of silk bedding usually costs hundreds of dollars, and everyone knows that silk is expensive. However, does anyone know why silk is so expensive?
It takes almost 3,000 cocoons to produce a yard of woven cloth. And, to produce those cocoons takes a whole lot of mulberry leaves: The worms grow 70 times their original size, eating 200 pounds of leaves to produce one pound of silk! It’s easy to see why silk was a luxury silk bedding set until very recent developments in production brought the costs down!
So now, you’ve known the reason why silk is so costly. Learn as much as you can to care for and maintain your mulberry silk bedding better.
