The diagrams below show the life cycle of the silkworm and the stages in the production of silk cloth. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make relevant comparisons.
The picture chart illustrates the five stages of silk production, while the other picture chart describes the developmental cycle of a silkworm.
Overall, it can be seen that the stages in the production of silk clothe involves selecting, boiling, unwinding, twisting and weaving. These stages have a shorter duration; meanwhile, developing a silkworm from eggs to a moth takes more than three months.
Production of silk starts with the selection of thread, and afterwards, it will be boiled in a container containing water. This is then followed by unwinding the thread after it cools off. The length is usually about 300-900m when stretched. This thread is then twisted with the help of a dye as well as when finally weaving.
Conversely, the life cycle of the silkworm begins when multiple eggs are laid, and after ten days, the eggs gradually develop into a silkworm larva. This larva feeds on mulberry leaves to grow. After-then, for another 4-6 weeks, the larva forms a silk thread. This is the longest time in their developmental stages. After 3-8 days, it develops into a cocoon and then forms a grown moth after 16days.
