This is definitely an Ugly Duckling story. These homely Muga cocoons are the raw material that is spun into the most gorgeous silk on earth. See 41-026 and 41-028 to see the dazzling finale. The Muga silkworm is wild; it feeds outdoors and is harvested from the forests in which it feeds. Each cocoon has been cut and the pupa removed. Although you can't reel these cocoons, they are infinitely spinnable.
We've washed these cocoons before they're sent to you. Be aware that further washing will release some brown colour from the cocoons. Wash them gently in warm water and pH neutral soap, rinse gently, and lay on a towel to dry. When the cocoons are wet, they are somewhat malleable and shapeable.
