We enjoyed the information provided about the silk worms and how the cocoons evolve into silk processes. We did not enjoy as much the multitude of sales people after the information trying to encourage us to purchase items.

Called in here on a bus tour it’s owned by the government so the quality of the silk is very good. They package everything so that you can get a super king doona that has had the air sucked out of it for travel.

Well, good and interesting review of silk processes. But, unless you are in the market for a silk comforter of bedspread, or silk clothing and handbags, you will feel some pressure to buy. The prices are good, but I zipped through quickly. Kids will enjoy.
