How are Eri and Mulberry different? Aren’t all silk fabrics the same?
The major difference between Eri and Mulberry is in the type of worms producing the yarn and the types of leaves they eat. In simple words, Eri and Mulberry silk are derived from two different species of silkworms. They each have their unique properties. Mulberry forms the bulk of the commercial silk produced in the world. Whereas, Eri is a wild silk and is one of the more distinctive natural silks available. Most importantly, this woolly pale yellow silk is often referred to as the fabric of peace as it is processed without killing silkworms.
