Web Article Roundup

I sometimes stumble across an article or blog entry from months or even years ago, and wonder, “How did I miss this one?”

So here, for your enjoyment:

Maiwa’s multi-part adventure in visiting India to find the “wild” silks:

testing the silks for weaving and dye

Part One of the trip, outline

Part Two, Tasar silk in Orissa

Part Three, Tasar in Assam

Part Four, Eri silk in Orissa

Part Five, Eri in Assam

Part Six, more Eri

Part Seven, Harvesting and Spinning the Eri


The Organic Clothing Blog has an article with a lot of neat information, despite some small but significant errors.


And Bloodroot Spins had a neat blog post…

which pointed me to this article on Aurora Silk, which appears to answer some of my concerns… but well, just doesn’t. Unfortunately, I’ve seen this kind of response from Aurora Silk before – it makes a lot of distracting noise, points at interesting but irrelevant things, and doesn’t really address the meat of the issue. Making silk, at least on a production level, involves killing bugs.
