I have decided to stop rearing Bombyx silkworms. They are very time consuming to rear so instead i am concentrating on the Samia ricini.
Samia ricini was my first interest in silk rearing & i feel a need to go back to them. They are continuously brooded so i can rear them all year round. I also want to concentrate on food suppliments for them & building a super strong genetical pool.
I have been building up the rearing since October last year & now at a point where i have all stages of Samia all the time. This means eggs will be available every month of the year & i will be able to take the whole lifecycle to talks & shows.
I am building a talks page now & it will be live by the end of this week.
The talks can be very flexible. The Ashford loom folds up & is very portable & now i have the Samia rearing continuous i can show silk from worm to weave.
