This silk also known as peace or Vegan silk is produced by the Eri silkworm which feeds mainly on Castor but also Sweet potato,Tapioca and Papaya. The silk thread is drawn without killing the worm inside the cocoons which are gathered after the moth emerges.
The silk threads are made up of even fibres which have been broken by the moth and therefore cannot be reeled making this process is very labour intensive . Eri is one of the most eco-friendly silk as it requires less land and water than other varieties. The silk is known for its warmth and is wool like in texture.
