I'm interested in joining a bulk-buy!Guardian said:If I remember correctly, it has something to do with the triangle shape of the protein that creates the prism effect and reflects a broad range of frequencies....some they aren't even really aware of yet. It's MUCH better to use wild silk and not the stuff that comes from the Chinese enslaved moths. They've been so over bred that they're all messed up and their proteins have changed.Sirius said:Did anybody of you find more information about silk and how and why it might work?
It's also important to watch out for weighted silks...ESPECIALLY manufacturers that use use iron! That just totally negates the effect we want. The type of silk you need to do what you want it to do is NOT cheap. If the silk is cheap...it's weighted, which makes it pretty much useless for our purposes.
Another interesting thing is that the caterpillar spins the silk cocoon in a Mobius band pattern just like the Fellowship's logo
Edited to add: I know someone in Indian who can get the good, traditional stuff...but she doesn't have a computer. Maybe if enough folks are interested, we could do a bulk buy?
