Silk has a deep history that originates in China during the Stone Age / BCE. This thousand yard fiber / filament was discovered from cocoons made from caterpillar to moth metamorphosis. These fibers are tightly woven together to create the silk fabric. The art of silk culture remained a secret to Asia for many years until cocoons were smuggled out of China and production began to flourish in Europe for centuries.
