"Is your silk cruelty-free?"

"Is your silk cruelty-free?"

This is the most hilarious thing I've heard in weeks.

I mean, they are bugs. Other, adult, versions of the same bug eat my fiber. So, producing silk is more like a natural cycle. Moth is a four-letter word in my house.

I think that people who worry about cruelty-free silk need to work on their priorities and consider what sorts of things in the world are *really* important. Like malnourished children, or rampant disease, for example.

If people are really worried about cruelty-free silk, they can always raise their own silk worms and collect the cocoons only after the moths have emerged. And process their own silk. Spin it. Dye it. I wonder how long that would last for most of the pampered princesses?
