Peace Silk

My little silkworms are not so little anymore, and I am looking forward to these hungry little creatures to start spinning lovely silk.  Most silk is produced when the cocoons are boiled, whilst containing the chrysalis.  This seems rather cruel to me, and after much research, I found a method that will allow me to harvest the silk whilst keeping the chrysalis alive and unharmed.  I can’t wait for my first batch of peace silk, although I am yet to discover how much, or how little silk I will get from about 350 worms.  Although, by the time the next cycle of worms come about, there will be thousands!
