Silk is a natural protein fibre, and Eri silkworm is naturally produced by the Eri silk moth,
scientific name “Samia Ricini”. Eri is silk spun from open-ended cocoons,
which means they are open mouthed and cannot be reeled, but are spun like cotton.
EXCELLENT TEXTILE PROPERTIES
Eri silk has certain excellent textile properties, which are unique in many respects
such as fineness, density, cross sectional shape, surface properties,
which play on important role in determining the end use of the fibre.
Eri silk is finer than Muga and Tasar, and softer than Mulberry.*
Eri is the softest and warmest among all the silks and possess excellent thermal properties
and offers tremendous blending possibilities with other natural fibres like wool, cotton, and linen.
It also has similar thermal properties when compared with wool.
