Spin little silkworm, spinning, spinning….

We visited a silk factory. Checked out the life cycle of the little buggers first.

Then an interview led but working silk spooling machine (my description, not theirs.)

This woman works on rugs all day long, sometimes one rug for several months. She follows the pattern pinned above the loom.

Did you know that when you turn a silk rug 180 degrees, the color looks totally different!
