Mulberry silk thread is belonging to one of the strongest and one of the most valuable silks. The material made from Mulberry silk is extremely durable. Mulberry silk thread and fibre is round, fine and smooth. Mulberry silk worms are fed with white mulberry leaves and as consequence the Mulberry cocoons are usually white. Mulberry silk fibre is from natural colour white and it is not usually coloured.
