Scouring: Wool is obtained from the fleece od sheep. The process of preparing and washing of wool to remove impurities such as dirt, dust and grease is known as scouring.

Moriculture: The process of cultivation of Mulberry plants in order to feed silkworms is known as Moriculture. The scientific name of mulberry is Morusa alba.

Yak fiber refers to yak wool produced from the coat hair of yaks (Bos grunniens), a long-haired bovine mainly found in the Himalayan region, Tibetan plateau, and some areas of Mongolia and Central Asia. It is to make clothing, tents, ropes and blankets. Yak sweaters are as soft and warm as cashmere sweaters.

Cocoon: During the pupa stage, the larvae of silk moth envelopes itself into a protective protein covering, known as cocoon. The process of drawing silk fibre from the cocoon is called reeling.]
