This fascinating holiday ornament is an actual Ceranchia wild silk cocoon. Ceranchia is a species of wild silk that is only found in Madagascar. This species has a unique inner and outer cocoon, which makes this natural wonder a beautiful conversation piece. The inner cocoon is dyed a cherry red, and the outer cocoon is its natural undyed color.
Our farmers use a sustainable harvesting technique when collecting wild silk cocoons so as not to harm the local silkworm population. In fact, every purchase promotes conservation efforts for this endemic species.
This silk ornament makes a perfect holiday decoration. It comes in a lovely kraft box for easy gifting, and includes a tag telling the story of the silk.
