Please find below the solution to the asked query    

Silk is a natural protein fibre which is obtained from the silkworm. 

Processing of silk:

1. Cocoons are collected and kept under the sun, or boiled, or exposed to steam. This helps in separating out the silk fibres. The process by which silk thread is separated from the cocoon is called reeling the silk.

2. Then, the spinning of silk fibres into threads is done.

3. The silk threads obtained are woven into the desired clothes.
