    So fascinating. I didn’t realize silk mills existed in North America. What gorgeous colors!

      No not America but England and I think that this is the one one in production – the silk works come from China as our climate is not suitable for them. Thanks for following and I have enjoyed your travels

        Oh my apologies For having the location wrong. Yes that makes sense that the silk comes from China. Thanks for explaining it to me and so happy to have you following our travels.
