    Silk production has various steps involved mulberry cultivation, cocoon cultivation, reeling, twisting, weaving to name a few. Please check knowledge resources from Central silk board they have good detail on every aspect. But ground reality may vary hence after reading please visit a nearby cocoon market and silk reeling units. It a challenging line of business but certainly profitable at every step of production though.
