The vial contains 0.5 ml of organic silkworm eggs ( over 200 eggs). These were laid by moths who as silkworms were raised on mulberry leaves grown in Virginia using organic horticultural practices. These eggs are from a mix of white silkworms (spinning yellow, white or light green cocoons) and striped silkworms ( some will spin yellow cocoons, some white cocoons). Also included is a Quick Start Guide to raising the White Chinese Silkworm.
