    Real silk is made from silk worm cocoon and is acquired by boiling the cocoons, as a result of which, the silkworm is killed. Once the silkworms are killed, the fiber is spun into a silk yarn. Artificial silk, on the other hand, is not made from silkworm cocoons. Rather, it is artificially prepared through chemical fibers. Artificial silks are not bad - the only thing is that the knock offs are sold on the price of real silks. Silk is used to make different things like clothes, carpets, bed sheets etc. and is high in tensile, even more than nylon. The trick is to distinguish real silk from the fake one through some tests that can be carried out. This will prove to be beneficial the next time you're shopping for silks - you won't end up paying a lot for fake silk.
