Eri Silk Cocoon to Cloth describes the lifecycle of naturally occuring eri silk fiber from the time it is spun by the worm into a cocoon till it exits as a cecropia moth. There are collections of textiles and fabrics in it, including designs to weave scarves.
"I have just reviewed an excellently illustrated book on ERI SILK TEXTILES around the world by Kiran Badola and Dr. Richard Peigler.
Kiran is a textile designer from NIFT, a mountain textile enthusiast and a home weaver. Dr. Peigler is a biologist and a wild silk textile expert and collector. Together they have put together this book on one of the least known variety of Silk. The book is very well written and illustrated with photographs. I would recommend this book to textile science teachers and textile designers alike. It's a home weaver must-have.
Publications on Eri are not easy to come by. This variety of Silk is found in north-east of India as also in countries like China, Bhutan, Thailand, Ethiopia, Romania etc. The book carries excellent photographs of Eri-silk products from all these regions. The section on eri-culture is excellent, covering the lifecycle of naturally occurring eri silk fiber from the time it is spun by the worm into a cocoon till it exits as a cecropia moth. There are collections of textiles and fabrics in it, including designs to weave scarves with detailed spec sheets and photos. Particularly valuable is the bibliography, which cites most known references on this important variety of Silk."
