From Cocoon to Thread, More Silk in Nong Kae,Sakon Nakhon,Thailand


With Ed and Jane visiting we decided to Nong Kae and drop off the copy of the video they had asked to to make for them. We were there just a week ago and this visit dovetailed perfectly onto the last as they we boiling the cocoons and  creating silk thread. The verdict on the worms was that they tasted better salted as they had little flavor simply boiled.

I was amazed by the dexterity of the woman making the thread if it had been me there would have been nothing but knots. There are 70 women and 4 men involved in the silk production in the village.
