Silk-moths have emerged from these cocoons. These are great for classroom demonstrations, arts & crafts – many people also use these cocoons for their natural beauty-healing properties.

Your order will consist of pierced cocoons (from the moth’s emergence) and will vary in quality of Silk and may have Silk-moth frass on them – which poses no concern and will not impact their usage.

For beauty use:

Soak cocoon in hot water to soften. Place each cocoon on your index finger and rub on problem areas to rejuvenate and refresh the skin. Silk protein contains over 12 amino acids that are beneficial in reducing wrinkle lines, reversing sun damage, and have a wonderful anti-inflammatory property due to the protein’s moisturising and calming factor.
