Samia ricini, a member of the Saturniidae family, is the perfect species to start with.
It is very easy to rear and breed and produces quality white silk fibers, that can be valuable for homemade spinning.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: These eggs are shipped from Spain. Unfortunately, giving the current Covid-19 pandemia, postal service has experienced random delays in deliveries. Although thing are getting better day by day, this is the reason why we DO NOT assume responsibility for eggs hatching during travel for orders sent outside Spain. As always we will try to reship or refund when possible, but this cannot be guaranteed. If you order from Spain, we do offer full reship or refund as always, in case of any problem.
