Thirty-seven meters of biodegradable silk floss made from only 3 ingredients: Natural Silk, Beeswax, and Organic Mint Leaf. The silk is a derivative of silkworms. However, the methods we use to obtain the silk are completely cruelty free. Others will force the worms to produce silk by exposing them to boiling water, ours are naturally produced without harming the little guys. Because we have not harmed them in the process, it is considered to be Ahimsa (Peace) Silk. The packaging is made from plant-based material that is commercially compostable.
