Meeting: Wild Silks of the World

Wild Silks of the World, presented by Richard Peigler, Ph.D., Incarnate Word College, San Antonio.

More than 95% of all silk in commerce comes from the domesticated silkworm that feeds on mulberry. However, silks from several kinds of moths in the familes Saturniidae and Lasiocampidae are also exploited in China, India, and other countries in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. This presentation covers the non-mulberry silks. Images include moths, caterpillars, textiles, and people spinning and weaving these silks.

You may arrive up to 15 minutes early to chat with other bug lovers. The meeting begins shortly after 7pm. We start with members sharing observations, do a little bit of club business, and then begin the presentation. The presentation is usually an hour long, and we're typically closing the meeting between 8:30 and 9:00pm.

Your RSVP is not required, but those who RSVP will receive email reminders and allow people to learn about other members.
