Recommendation by Lemi
Observe the magic at work while browsing lovely products at Cocoon! The secrets of the silkworm are on full display; young worms feed on mulberry leaves in a round winnowing basket, while older ones have begun to spin their silk cocoons on a mesh frame. In sericulture, these cocoons are collected and unspooled for their precious threads. The spectacle is an effective lure, leading passers-by to the shop’s array of supple shawls and colorful neckties. Ms. Ly, the owner and shopkeeper, even teaches guests how to check silk for authenticity by a burn test! The real deal withers (not melts) and smells like singed hair when touched by a flame.
