Naturally Inspired Silk Farm is a unique silk farm based in the UK on the Herefordshire/Shropshire boarders.
With ethics & animal welfare at the forefront of modern day farming only 'peace' silk is produced on the farm.
This is where ALL of our moths are allowed to hatch from thier cocoons before the silk is processed. The moths are then able to live a full life.
Bombyx mori is the main species reared here. The silk worms of this species feed on the foliage of the Mulberry tree. This species is also reared here12 months of the year. Out of season on artificial diet which is based on dry mulberry foliage & used to feed the silk worms.
Two other species are also reared : Eri silk & Chinese Tussah.
