Constantinople – A Center of Trade


The Silk Industry

Silkworm larvae are fed cut-up mulberry leaves before they climb twigs and spin their silken cocoons. The silk is a continuous-filament fiber consisting of protein and a gum called sericin. The sericin is removed by placing the cocoons in hot water which frees silk filaments and readies them for reeling. The immersion in hot water also kills the silkworm larvae. Single silk filaments are combined to form yarn. This yarn is drawn under tension through several guides and wound onto reels. Finally, the yarn is dried, and the raw silk is packed according to quality.
