Abstract

Cocoons from three varieties [Pure Mysore, NB4D2 and crossbreed] were collected from grainages and cocoon market. Both normal and uzi infested cocoons were reeled using epprouvette at low speed. Filament length number of breaks, loss of silk, reelability and denier were determined for both damaged and normal cocoons. The reeling of uzi infested cocoons was found to be unsuitable for producing quality silk.
