Cocoon section

The initial meaning of a cocoon pot is to take silk from a cocoon in common Uzbek pots. Cocoon is a miracle product with no cocoon residue. The total length of a cocoon is 500 to 1600 meters. A dry cocoon weighs 0.3 g to 1 g. Yodgorlik Margilan company has technological processes for the production of silk satin, adras, tea, bekasab and silk rugs. In the cocoons section, boiling water is poured into an Uzbek pot to remove silk from the cocoons, 200 g to 2 kg of cocoons are squeezed.

The number of cocoons at the tip of the cocoon is 16 to 30 cocoons. Silk wrapped in a tube becomes a calava for processing. The weight of 1 calava can be from 100 g to 200 g. To get 1 kg of silk, you can use 2 kg to 4 kg of cocoons. The silkworm inside the cocoon is obtained from a pharmaceutical ointment, which restores the skin to the p / x level, and is sent to the dye for staining.
The silk produced in the Margilan Yodgorlik factory has no analogues in the world!

Yarn and yarn department
