The Life of a Silkworm in Syracuse, NY

This video is very descriptive and interesting.  There is a debate about the silkworm process as many consider it inhumane treatment.  The moth cannot be allowed to emerge from the cocoon because the silk strand inside must be intact to be used to produce silk products.  This is a topic we will discuss at a later date.  There are alternatives to silk as it is produced in this film but they are not always a good environmental or human approach.
