HOW SILK IS PRODUCED
The production of silk begins with a tiny worm know as Bombyx mori: silk moth, the moth lays eggs, which develop into silk worms. The worms are fed on mulberry leaves until they are one month old, when they will build a cocoon from their spittle.
SILK MAKING PROCESS
The cocoon is put into boiling water, and the silk thread is then extracted. The length of silk thread in a cocoon varies considerably, from 500 to 1,500 yards, depending on the kind of worm that produced it. In Thailand, most silk thread is hand-reeled by women, the filaments form several cocoons being reeled together on a wooden spindle into a uniform strand of raw silk.
This is a time-consuming process since it takes about 40 hours to reel one and a half kilograms of silk, but some sericulture families have simplified the job by using a reeling machine. The majority, however, still use the traditional method, which produces three grades of silk: two fine ones suitable for lightweight fabric and a thicker one used for heavier material.
The skeins of silk thread are then soaked in hot water to remove the remainder of the seracin. Since Thai silk yarn is yellow, it must be bleached before dyeing; this is done by immersing the skeins in large tubs containing hydrogen peroxide, after which they are washed and dried in the sun.
Thai Silk is then woven on a handloom, the threads (warps and wefts) that pass across and are inserted during the weaving process. Thai Silk is hand-woven fabric, which means that although if conforms to set standards of width, color, and quality it still retains a degree of individuality impossible to achieve by more advanced technology.
HOW TO CLEAN AND CARE?
Though Thai Silk has durable and resilient qualities, it is a delicate fabric that cannot be treated like linen or cotton. To maintain its original appearance, the fabric should be dry-cleaned.
Thai Silk can also be hand-washed, the most important thing being to use a mild soap or detergent. Rinse the silk item in tepid water (not over 48.6 degrees Celsius) as many times as necessary. Gently press excess water from the fabric by hand - do not wring. In the last rinse, add a spoonful of clear white vinegar to retain its original luster and allow it to drip dry in the shade.
Do not put Thai Silk into a washing or dry cleaning machine. It is advisable to iron Thai Silk on the reverse side just before it is dry; or put a damp cloth over the surface and iron over it.
