Silk Farm Update

By ricini, Apr 3 2017 07:27PM

It has been a while writing on this blog with many changes.


The concentration this year will be on the varieties raised & building up the gene bank. At present there are 21 varieties of Bombyx here. The warm weather & my absence with not putting the eggs in the fridge has meant all the eggs have now hatch & i mean ALL !


With the mulbeery trees only just sprouting i am having to rear on artificial food. All is going well with first only a few days from spinning. At this point i will photograph all the varieties & dedicate a page to them. This work will start tomorrow, so you will be able to see them very soon indeed.


All the silk produced will go into a large art project later in the year where i will use it for making sculpture.


William.
