In order to produce silk, silk worms are bread and rose in a controlled temperature. When they form cocoons around them by secreting protein, cocoons are collected and sold to factories. There, they are segregated as per the color and shape. After that, cocoons are passed through hot and cold immersions to make the filament soft. And finally, these filaments are combined to produce threads of raw silk.
