The silk is attained from both nonentity andnon-insect fauna. The nonentity fauna substantially comprises of mulberry andnon-mulberry silkworms. In India, mulberry silk contribute to an extent of 75 and it's a natural fibre used in cloth assiduity. It's soft, smooth and lustrous and holds a prestigious place among cloth fibres and generally called as the ‘ Queen of fabrics ’. Mulberry silkworm is a monophagous nonentity, which feeds only on mulberry leaves. Mulberry includes number of species and kinds specific to type of mulberry civilization, silkworm parenting type, silkworm races used for parenting and climatic conditions of the place. Mulberry sericulture involves the civilization of mulberry shops to produce leaves, that fed to silkworm, inturn silkworms produce the cocoons at the end of their larval life. The cocoons are the raw material for silk product that comprises reeling of cocoons by different reeling machines of marketable significance suitable for particular type of cocoons used and weaving to convert yarn/ silk thread into fabrics.

Derivate of silk assiduity The naiads after development crawl down the tree at dusk, which are also culled and placed in “ Jali ”( cocoonage) for spinning of cocoons. For durability of generations 5 seeds cocoons are named and kept in grainage hall for emergence of moth and product of eggs. Rest 95 good cocoons are stifled for reeling purpose. typically 1 kg of raw silk can be attained from 4500- 6000 cocoons depending upon the quality conciseness and weight of shell.birth of silk hair from cocoons by employing a set of processes is known as silk reeling. Muga silk are generally reeled by traditional ‘ Bhir ’ reeling process. In recent times, pedal driven reeling machines( RMRS type, Choudhury type) and motor driven machines( CSTRI reeling cum wringing machine) are also rehearsed in some areas.The bulk of the cocoon used for reeling is attained from the “ katia ”( afterlife) crop. The leaves at this time are relatively suitable, the seasonal temperature wasps and canvases etc. are much lower and cocoons produced are comparatively richer in silk. The “ jura ”( downtime) crop is raised for producing seed cocoons only. During the downtime the worms take further than one month to spin cocoons, which are also veritably poor in silk content. The “ jethua ”( spring) crop is also important crop. The golden colour of the silk from cocoons of this crop is advanced than the “ aherua ” and “ bhodia ” crop. The “ aherua ”( summer) and “ bhodia ”( late summer) crop are raised substantially for seed cocoons.
