Price: 5 double cocoons per package - $12.00
These huge, amazing cocoons are from Madagascar. We support a project there that has reintroduced silk production to a region in need of sustainable, ecologically-responsible employment. The cocoons are stunning - they are double-layer. The outer layer is larger (about 3 1/2" X 2 1/4") and lacy; the inner cocoon is smaller and denser. Both are exquisite. And yes, the otherworldly gold colour is the way nature made them. They have been pressed flat, but can be "repuffed" by soaking in water. There are 5 double cocoons in each package.
