These 1 1/2" white silk cocoons were offered on Etsy uncut with a dead silkworm still inside, but I didn't want to deal with cutting and removing the worm. Thankfully, the seller was willing to do that for me before shipping. They are very sturdy, and I have some crafting ideas for them. However, at this point, I'm just experimenting with dyeing some them. The tan ones are tea-dyed, and the red and green took a couple drops of food coloring. More to come!
