- Silk reeling, also
called winding silk energy, refers to a set of neigong movement
principles expressed in traditional styles of t'ai chi ch'uan, but
especially emphasised by the Chen and Wu styles of t'ai chi ch'uan.
The name derives from the metaphorical principle of "reeling the
silk from a silk worm's cocoon".
- Silk Reeling is the
process by which a number of cocoon baves are reeled together to
produce a single thread.
- Cocoons should not be
too flossy. Floss merely adds to the weight of cocoons when yielding
silk for reeling. Cocoons should have well-rounded and firm ends and
must not have too pronounced points.
- The cooked cocoons
sink in water at the time of reeling.
- Re – reeling is done
to transfer the raw silk into standard sized hanks.
- Raw silk reeling may
be classified by direct reeling method on a standard sized reel,
indirect method of reeling on small reels, and the transfer of
reeled silk from small reels onto standard sized reels on a
re-reeling machine. The last technique is primarily applied in
modern silk reeling processes.
- The Automatic reeling
machine mechanizes the processes of groping ends, picking ends;
cocoon feeding to reeling thread and separation of dropped end
cocoons during the reeling process.
- Reeling velocity is
defined as the winding speed of raw silk on the reel. The reeling
velocity is measured as the length of raw silk reeled during 1
minute or as the revolution number of the reel per minute.
- Sericulture is
concentrated mainly in the states of West Bengal, Jammu and Kashmir,
Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.
- Silk production was
started in America in the early 17th Century when bounties were
offered to settlers in Virginia, Georgia and Carolina.
- In India silk culture
- Silk played the role
of a lead sector in the €conomic development of Japan.
