    Wild silk is made by silkworms. As the name of the fabric suggests, the silkworms live in the wild. Wild silkworms feed on and live in trees.

    Wild silk is a lot more textured than regular silk.

    Due to its short fiber length, wild silk is more comparable to wool.

    It has the same positive attributes as silk (see above).

    The process of making wild silk is also known as non-violent, which is when the silk is processed without killing the silkworm. For around 30 days the silkworm grows and munches on tree leaves until it reaches its final size. It then starts to spin its cocoon, which takes another 15 days. Once the moth leaves its cocoon, the silk is collected and processed into yarn.
