Overview of silk factory in Dalat
The silk weaving factory in Dalat is an interesting place to visit, to see the entire process, from cocoon to fabric. The cocoons are soaked in hot water, and the delicate thread is wound onto a machine that unravels the cocoon. The thread is then wound onto a reel, which is used on a large loom, to weave it into delicately patterned fabric. The factory can be visited on a tour, or is often included in an Easy Rider itinerary. It is around 25 km from Dalat, and can easily be combined with the Elephant Falls and Linh An Pagoda.
